What a GREAT gig! The NOVA ensembles performed at the famed, Carlyle Club in Old Town Alexandria on October 30th, 2017.
Our Jazz studies director, John Kocur, kicked off the evening events, directed and informed the audience about the club, songs and upcoming events.
The Nighthawks Jazz Band worked it! Playing out at the club is really a wonderful opportunity for our students.
While everyone performed, dancers spun about the floor…
There were even dance classes for those who wanted to learn some new swing moves! NOVA’s ballroom dance instructor Alan Golombek took the time to teach anyone who was interested. It turned out there were a lot of interested people!
Kyle Wright joined the band for several songs. He really has a phenomenal voice!
Everyone played well and we all had a great time!
Look for the date for next year’s club date! It’s every fall.
The music from all the ensembles was fantastic!
Looking forward to hearing them again at Jazz4Justice on March 22nd at the Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center in Alexandria!
See you there!
