I thought I would let all our jazz fans know that the OPRF Jazz Ensemble will be featured on 87.7 FM, also known as Smooth Jazz Radio. This is from the 1st annual "Battle of the High School Jazz Bands" finals contest from Wednesday Nov. 17 at Roosevelt University in Chicago.  Our students performed the best they ever have. The crowd loved it and so did the judges. Unfortunately, they did not win.  It was truly an honor being included with these outstanding programs.
The following are dates for the appearences:

On The Sunday Brunch, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 12.

10:30 a.m. – “Emergency Stopping Only”
12:30 p.m. – “Harlem Speaks”
Each segment will be followed by a comment from Anthony Svejda.


On Lexus’ Sittin’ In with Steve Cole, from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday Dec. 15.
Each band’s two pieces will be featured sometime in the hour.
