The Ellington Jazz Club was the venue for a wonderful celebration of music this week thanks to the Christ Church Music Department.

MC Stephanie Balfour welcomed the sell-out crowd introducing Years 7 to 12 students in our Saxaphone Quartet, Jazz Band 1, Jazz Band 2 and Jazz Combo. Jazz Director Paul Millard joined the ensembles to entertain with a range of fabulous musical items.

“This night is a fantastic experience for the students, its not every day you have the opportunity to play in a Jazz club,” said Mr Millard.

“The boys practise diligently and play at a number of school assemblies, events and functions – but this evening is really the pinnacle of performance for them.”

The night was a fantastic success thanks to a number of individuals who contributed time and effort in the lead up to this year’s event.

Special thanks to Kevin Gillam, Paul Millard, Karen Sim, Cassandra Podbury, Joe Grech, Stephanie Balfour, James Chapman, Jack Collinson, Glyn McDonald, Christine Counsel, Ian Morin and Eboney Yapp.
