Big Band Blowout Our Big Band Blowout concert is coming up in May. This is a big event, where our Jazz Band will be performing onstage with a professional jazz musician and share the concert with the Esperanza HS Jazz Bands. It’s an exciting event!

This event is also a fundraiser–we will be selling tickets a few weeks prior to the event and we get to keep the profit made from the tickets we sell! We are also able to purchase a program advertisement, or a “shout out” to one of the performers. The program is very well done and seen by an audience of 600+ attendees. Deadline is March 21st!
