Mount St. Mary Academy will host the fourth annual “A Night of Jazz” on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at Banchetti by Rizzo.
The show will feature jazz ensembles from public and private schools. St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute’s ensemble will be performing for the first time; the school joins Mount St. Mary Academy, Sweet Home High School, Amherst High School and St. Francis High School.
“We have five of the area’s best high school jazz groups performing,” said John Hathaway, Mount St. Mary Band Director and Chairman of the event. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for the Catholic high schools and the public high schools to perform for the community at the same site. The musicians will also enjoy playing for the other groups and listening to them. Get there early as it sells out. As a note, there is great food available all night”
Rob DeSantis, Associate Band Director at the Mount stated, “The girls at The Mount are really excited to hear the other schools perform. They’re especially eager to hear the St. Joe’s group since some of our girls have friends from middle school who now attend St. Joe’s.”
Food and refreshments, made by Banchetti chefs, will be available to purchase at the event.
Banchetti by Rizzo’s is located at 550 North French Rd. Amherst, N.Y. 14228. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $10. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
