Jazz Hounds Take New York City

By: Simeon Parker

The annual Jazz Band journey to the Big Apple has always been an educational experience and a special opportunity to witness the workings of music in the modern world. This year, it allowed the Jazz Band alongside a tour group to experience the world of music and has inspired Gilman musicians to hone their craft and become even better performers. The faculty members who worked to make this trip possible acknowledge the benefits of this journey and deserve Gilman’s gratitude for making these opportunities for Gilman musicians possible and improving Gilman’s next generation of musicians. Summarizing the trip, Jazz Band Director Mrs. Cheryl Nkeba notes, “In over twenty years of teaching, it was one of the best ‘Musical Days’ that I have encountered.”
