|April 24 update from IMPA and MVHS instrumental music|
We enjoyed a great afternoon of jazz on Saturday! Thanks to our musicians, Jason and Dana, and all who helped with the event.
Now we look forward to the May 9th Spring Chamber Concert and the May 17th Spring Instrumental Music concert!
Claire Hubel: who organized the Jazz Festival on Saturday: recruiting sponsors and volunteers, organizing tasks and helpers, planning food, taking care of signs, and made sure all went well.
Paul Hubel: who prepared the pulled pork, cooking some 50 pounds of pork in his backyard smoker for our Jazz Festival refreshment stand
Jazz Festival Sponsors: West Valley Music (who also sent out a technician to staff a table for emergency instrument repairs); DeMartini Orchard market in Los Altos (who donated all the strawberries/fruit/produce for our refreshment stand); Sonos Strings, Heaney Violins, Hope Street Music Studios, Burger King, Sunnyvale Music School, Office Depot, Baskin Robbins.
