Big Band sounds at Cedarcrest
The Generation Gap Big Band and the Cedarcrest High School music department will present their annual concert on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 7:30 p.m., in the Cedarcrest auditorium.
Proceeds from this musical go to the United Snoqualmie Valley Scholarship Foundation and to the high school music department.
The Big Band entertains all ages with their bygone numbers that are popular again. The director's bits of historical introductory notes add to the enjoyment.
Ryan Lewis, high school music department head, has been called into active wartime duty, but his replacement, Steve Blake, is ready to bring his students to participate in this popular musical.
Generation Gap Big Band member and flugelhorn soloist, Anthony Smith, past chair of the foundation and former Cedarcrest counselor, is now curriculum director for the Riverview School District.
The United Snoqualmie Valley Scholarship Foundation is a member of the National Dollars for Scholars.
The board members, local school and community people, have interested many companies, organizations and individuals in providing local scholarships. The foundation also awards its scholarship each year and this is the main Lower Valley fund-raiser.
Tickets are available from high school music students, scholarship foundation members or at the door and are kept low in price so that all may attend.
For information about the foundation, call Ellen Huls, Cedarcrest counselor and chair of the foundation, at (425) 844-4864 or by calling past President Tove Burhen at (425) 788-1266.
Groups or individuals are encouraged to donate to the foundation or to begin an award for deserving students.
