The North Idaho College Jazz Ensemble will highlight its collaboration with area high school jazz groups during the “Support Jazz in Our Schools” concert Monday, March 14.

“We work together throughout the year on concerts and clinics,” said NIC Director of Bands Terry Jones. “This was a chance for us to use our collaboration to shine a spotlight directly on the high school groups and feature the talented musicians that make up their groups.”

The Coeur d’Alene High School Jazz Band, directed by Jim Phillips, will kick off the performance with “Feet Bone” by Duke Ellington and the Bob Curnow arrangement of “Always and Forever.”

Tim Sandford’s jazz band from Lake City High School will perform two pieces by Sammy Nestico, including “Samantha” and “Hay Burner.”

The Post Falls High School Jazz Band, directed by Matt Barkley and Jake Johnson, will perform Nestico’s “Switchin’ Times” and “Skyhawk” by Fred Strum.

The NIC Jazz Ensemble, directed by Jones, will perform “Almost Like Being in Love” as well as the Mark Taylor arrangement of “All the Things You Are” and Oliver Nelson’s “Critics Choice.”

The concert will wrap up by bringing together all four bands for a grand finale performance of “In the Mood” by Joe Garland.

The concert is free and open to the public.

Information: (208) 769-3276.
