We are excited that Ligon Magnet Middle School’s Jazz Ensemble has chosen to attend this year’s Midwest Clinic.  This four day international band and orchestra conference held in Chicago is full of opportunities for musicians to learn from renowned professionals, meet and work with fellow youth musicians, rehearse great music, and perform.  

Ligon’s jazz ensemble has been selected to perform at the conference on Wednesday, December 18th at 3:00.  We are proud that a local band, one which includes multiple Philharmonic Association members, will be performing at this impressive event.  Patrick Donahue (TYJO and TYP), Sean McCoy (TYJO), and Lily McCoy (TYJO and TYP) are all a part of Ligon’s jazz ensemble.  Our very own Lisa Burn, conductor of our Triangle Youth Jazz Orchestra, will be conducting a portion of the program.  

We wish the Ligon Magnet Middle School’s Jazz Ensemble the best of luck with their performance, and commend all the youth musicians in the band for pursuing their musical interests in this grand way.
