Photo Gallery of “Northshore Jazz Night” at Inglemoor High School

Posted by glennled on May 31, 2013

It started in 1984, when Eric Lucas was a senior in high school—a concert called “Northshore Jazz Night” that features the high school jazz bands within the Northshore School District. Mr. Lucas is now Director of Instrumental Music and Performing Arts Department Chair at Woodinville High School. “So often,” he said, “when we play at jazz competitions and individual school concerts, we never get the chance to hear each other play. This is a fun event, usually about the first week of May, just for the entertainment of ourselves, parents, relatives, and friends.”

And on 30 April at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, we heard five bands from Woodinville, Bothell, and Inglemoor high schools. I got photos of almost every band, but my camera’s battery died just before the Inglemoor Jazz Ensemble took the stage.  The lead trumpeter in the Woodinville Jazz Ensemble is my former student. Please click on any photo to enlarge it.

More than 20,000 boys and girls have played baseball and softball in the Pacific Little League since it was founded 48 years ago in 1965, and for the last two, I’ve had the privilege of sounding the bugle call, “To the Color,” on the annual PLL Day–this year on 27 April at Lynndale Park in Lynnwood. More than 800 boys and girls, ages 5-18, from Lynnnwood and Edmonds now participate.

For more information about PLL and this annual event, please see www.pacificlittleleague.com and my post dated 22 May 2012, in this blog (archives, left column).

Please click on any photo englarge it. Two were taken by Carol Sheldon (as marked), and Designer Portrait Studio took all the other photos (see  www.thedesignerportraitstudio.com).
