On Nov. 16 and 17 Park High School will be participating the Livingston Jazz Festival. This is where professional musicians come from all over the country to teach students Masterclasses and perform.

Jazz is a type of music taught by Garrett Stannard during zero period, here they learn improvisation in music. Unlike classic band, jazz is not completely written out for you, which is where professionals step in to help teach these skills during festivals such as this one.

Sponsors such as the Montana Arts Council have already pitched in a large amount of money to help fund this festival.

This year they have guest artists coming in from Montana and Wyoming to perform at Park High, The Depot, and The Attic. The bands performing during the festival are Jazztet, Little Big Band, and The Alex Platt Collective, Stannard said.

In past years the Jazz Festival has only lasted one day, but this year it lasts a total of two, making it bigger and more integrated into students’ classes and in the ways that they can perform music.

You can access tickets to the festival by visiting parkhighbands.org, where an Incident Organization Chart and completed schedule are also available.

If you are a music fanatic or just want to get out of the house for a few days, buy tickets to the Jazz Fest where amazing performers are gathering to spread information on the beauty of Jazz.
