Last month, the DCA Jazz Ensemble was one of twelve high school bands selected to participate in the Swing Central High School Jazz Competition in Savannah, GA – March 28 – 30, 2012. This is their 5th consecutive year in participation. 

Essentially Ellington is a national competition and is part of the Jazz at Lincoln Center program headed by musical director Wynton Marsalis. This year, DCA Jazz finished in 1st place at the prestigious competition considered to be the Super Bowl of high school jazz competitions and featured Dillard performing at New York's famed Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center with Marsalis.  This promises to be a great evening of music and dancing. 

This is a call to South Florida to help these students reach their fullest potential with ticket proceeds benefiting the Jazz Education music programs at Dillard Center for the Arts.  Be proud and part of their accomplishments. Let’s swing together to the wonderful sound of jazz.
