Saturday August 5, 2017
12:30 - 1:45pm – MYA Conservatory Big Band
Directed by Chris Madsen, the Big Band features advanced jazz students ready to play at the highest level.
Midwest Young Artists Conservatory was founded in 1993 when a group of parents found rehearsal space at Lake Forest Country Day School and asked Founder and Director, Dr. Allan Dennis, to continue working with their children. The week after that organizational meeting, 55 students showed up for the first rehearsal. The students were divided in a Junior and Senior Orchestra, with quite a few of the older or more advanced students playing in both, a tradition of nurturing leadership that continues as a core value of our programs.
2:15pm-3:30pm - The Judy Roberts Trio with special guest Wayne Messmer
4 - 5:15pm - Tim Fitzgerald’s Full House “Tribute to Wes Montgomery”
