Jazz on the Green is a celebration for the passionate students in Jazz Choir. It is breathtaking how much energy and love is put into all they do as Jazz Choir seems to get more and more talented every year.
One of the requirements for Jazz Choir is that the students must be in one or more of the auditioned choirs (Troubadours, Meistersingers, or Girls 21), and, of course, have a passion for music. The continuous passion is amazing, considering all the work that has to be put into all they do. Mr. Cave, the choir teacher, is also very helpful while motivating his students. When Mr. Cave is teaching, his ongoing passion for what he does is evident, even when he stands on the sidelines, cheering on his students. The amount of talent that is expressed is shocking, considering the group is only made up of high school students. The group of sixteen for this performance did their own arrangements of the pieces for the performances. Usually this can only be accomplished by college students or people more advanced in music.
Although the concert was amazing and full of exuberance, the weather was not. Cloudy and gray with an abundance of rain, the group recovered well from having to go from their usual spot (the “green” outside of the IC tunnel) into the IC cafeteria. The gray, rainy sky, however, added a dramatic background to an eventful evening. Front and center at every show is the best seat in the house.
It is a proud time to be a Bruin when there is this much talent coursing through our veins and through the halls, bringing satisfaction and beautiful music to all of our students, faculty and parents.
