The Bordentown Regional High School Jazz Ensemble has been invited to perform at the Assisi Music Festival in Italy this coming summer of 2020. The music festival features performers, clinicians and University faculty from around the world. Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, the students of the BRHS Jazz Ensemble will perform in three concerts spending seven nights in Assisi and three nights in Rome. Students will be immersed in a musical and learning culture throughout this trip of a lifetime.
The BRHS Jazz Ensemble is comprised of students ranging from 9th-12th grade who have successfully auditioned into the group under the direction of Mr. Michael Montalto. Winning numerous competitions, including placing 2nd at the prestigious Berklee High School Jazz Festival in 2019, and participating in many community events and concerts, our music program has been highlighted throughout the year. The pride and student ownership of this ensemble and program is commendable.
Our fundraising goal is to help defray the cost of the trip per student to make it more manageable for the parents.
Thank you for your willingness to contribute to the students' musical and cultural experience that will last a lifetime!
