Follow along on this web site with information about the China Tour this summer by the New Trier High School Jazz Ensemble and Chamber Orchestra. There are currently 98 students and adults going on this concert tour, including a film crew to produce a DVD of the tour.

We need tour families to find prizes for the Weigh To Go Contest.
New prize... Mr. Baumann is donating his covered parking space next to the auto shop for ONE WEEK to a student winner. We need help from EVERYONE locating good prizes.

ANNOUNCEMENT #1

After careful consideration, Mr. Warrick and Mr. Rosheger have decided with the Dance Committee that plans for the STRAUSS WALTZ/ BIG BAND DANCE should not proceed. The primary reasons are:

1.  That a suitable location for such an event could not be found without paying an excessive amount; 

2. That the parent's and student's efforts to plan and execute such an event might better be spent perfecting the fund-raisers we already have planned;

3. That the students will be much to busy during the month of May to devote the time it would take to have a dance. 

We appreciate the help of Mrs. Pietrzak-Suzda,Mrs. Gubman, Mrs. VanderWilt, and Mrs. Bernstein for devoting the time to research our options and meet with Mr. Rosheger and Mr. Warrick. THEY WILL BE USING THE ORIGINAL TOUR PARTICIPATION FORMS TO OBTAIN NAMES OF PARENTS WHO INDICATED THAT THEY WANTED TO HELP WITH FUND RAISING. WE NEED HELP TO DO THINGS THE "RIGHT WAY."

ANNOUNCEMENT #2

The school administration has given us permission to have an ONLINE AUCTION as a China Tour fund-raiser!!!

We will auction the items that might not be appropriate for the
Weigh To Go Contest and put them up for bidding for two weeks starting at the Spring Jazz Concert on April 14. 

... And the first item for auction is...

6 VIP (reserved seats) with VIP parking for the GRADUATION CEREMONY for this year's seniors at Northwestern University in June!!!!

ANNOUNCEMENT #3

Chick Corea and Gary Gurton have agreed to allow the Chamber Orchestra to perform a brief selection to open the second half of there concert. This means that both groups will now appear at the on APRIL 29.
