From Marcus Pimpleton, news about some of his Chief Sealth International High School musicians – including an event coming up weekend after next:

Please join me in congratulating the following Sealth students who were selected for Commendation Awards from the 2012 Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. The award states that the students were selected for “giving a Superior Solo Performance within an Ensemble or Combo.”

Spencer Duncan, piano
Janelle Maroney, voice
Will McMinn, alto sax
Paal Nilssen, alto sax
Cameron Nakatani, trumpet
Nehemiah Parker, trombone
Emma Pierce, clarinet

(You can see all these students in action and many more at the Big Band Dinner dance on March 24th – see below for more on that:

On Saturday, March 24th, from 6-10 pm, please join the jazz ensembles of Chief Sealth International High School and Denny International Middle School for a night of jazz music, dinner, and dancing in the Chief Sealth International H.S. Galleria. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for students. Dinner will feature Otis Pimpleton’s awesome barbecue chicken, chicken gumbo from the New Orleans restaurant, red potatoes, baked beans, rice, and cornbread. A vegetarian option is available upon request and attendees will enjoy the sounds of the Denny Jazz Band, Chief Sealth High School Jazz Ensembles I and II, and the West Seattle Big Band. Students interested in dancing without the dinner, can purchase a special dance-only ticket for $10. This will be a fun night…. please come out and support our jazz students.

    I’m looking forward to the Dinner Dance! But I’m having trouble finding out how to buy tickets… Are those available yet?
