In late April of this year, the Sisters High School Jazz Choir will sing at one of the most magical places on the planet: Disneyland. This is a special opportunity available to the choir through a lot of hard work and fundraising. While visiting the park, students will get a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse of the “behind the scenes” at Disneyland. Performances throughout the park and at a local hotel are also planned.

An important source of the funds raised comes from the annual raffle of a quilt donated by local artist Susan Cobb. Tickets are available at all High School music concerts. For more information, or if you cannot attend a concert and would like to purchase tickets, contact Rick Johnson, choir director at [email protected] The winner will be drawn on Quilt Show day, Saturday, July 8, and will be contacted directly.

The choir’s next performance is at 7 p.m., March 9, at Sisters High School Auditorium. The concert will highlight both the Jazz and Concert Choirs, as well as the Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band. The music focuses on classical pieces, world music, and — of course — some jazz pieces. Tickets for the raffle will be available: $1 each or 6 for $5 in cash.
