Fox Point’s Maple Dale Jazz Combo Band takes their sound to Mason Street Grill’s music stage this Friday, December 3rd. The group, consisting of seven middle school students, performs there for the first time from 7:30 to 8:15 p.m.
Their opportunity was made possible by Maple Dale’s Director of Bands Jamie Breiwick, who also plays jazz music weekly at Mason Street Grill. Breiwick says his love of music was enhanced by a middle school performance and wanted to provide the same opportunity to his students. “I want to show these kids how their music studies can translate for others to enjoy, outside the school walls.”
The show consists of jazz standards like Duke Ellington and Herbie Hancock. Breiwick says the students have practiced for months and are “beyond excited” about the performance.
The show is open and free for the public. Everyone is also invited to stay for the Jamie Breiwick Group which starts playing at 8:30 p.m. that Friday.
