LEVEL: Medium Crossword by Myles Mellor and Susan Flanagan life & arts the glenview lantern | January 25, 2018 | 21 Glenview musicians star at North Shore Jazz Fest Alexa Burnell Freelance Reporter Glenbrook South transformed into a musiclover’s haven on Saturday, Jan. 20, during the 41st annual all-day North Shore Jazz Fest, where more than 80 Chicagoarea middle- and highschool ensembles performed for top honors and the chance to learn from experienced pros. GBS Band Director Aaron Wojcik explained that the event has withstood the test of time because of the dedication from the student leadership board and the parent-run Glenbrook South Instrumental League, whose members pour their hearts and souls into making the festival stand up to its reputation of excellence. “The [instrumental league] does so much for our music department,” Wojcik said. “They assist with fundraising and even help provide instruments for kids whose families may not have the financial means. Because of them, events like Jazz Fest are not only possible, but incredibly well-run and organized.” Michelle Cummings, president of the instrumental league, and Laura Heyser, its chairwoman, said the festival is unique because of its positive ripple effect on all those involved. “Jazz Fest is a fundraiser, helping us maintain musical programing throughout the year,” Cummings said. “The fest itself is also a tradition unlike any other. There are not a lot of opportunity for youth musicians in the Chicago area to perform jazz, so this is a unique experience where jazz experts give constructive feedback, allowing young musicians to get tips from some of the best in the businesses.” According to Heyser, the festival also attracts a large number of volunteers, who embrace their roles. “In addition to about 200 student workers at Jazz Fest, we have about 300 parent volunteer shifts that need to be filled on the day of the event, in addition to the team that works for months on the planning and preparations,” Heyser said. “Some of our parent volunteers are band parent alumni who return year after year, continuing to support Jazz Fest and the GBS band programs. So many parent volunteers offer to stay for extra shifts to help out; we never have to worry about being short-handed.” On the morning of the big event, GBS quickly filled with young adults eager to showcase their talent with the hopes of bettering themselves and possibly earning recognition along the way. Highschool student guides accompanied bands to their assigned room, where each ensemble had 25 minutes to prepare and perform in front of professionals such as Dr. Travis Heath, chairperson of the music department and associate professor of trumpet at Northeastern Illinois University, and Paul Wertico, seven-time Grammy award-winning drummer, to name a few. Clinicians judged on the following criteria: blend, intonation, balance, rhythm, precision, dynamics, interpretations, arrangements, presentation and improvisation. Judges such as Bob Lark, who is recognized regionally, nationally and internationally as a contemporary jazz educator and well-known trumpet player, awarded top-performing musicians with multiple prizes, including a four-year scholarship to Roosevelt University. Throughout the day, ensembles took a break, only to be entertained by professionals, such as Reggie Thomas and the Midwest Young Artists Jazz Combo, The Prospect Jazz Band under the direction of Peter Weber, and Bob Lark and his Alumni Band. While the day of magical music-making put a smile on Wojcik’s face, nothing could have made him more pleased than watching his own GBS student leaders make the day run smoothly and professionally. “What warms my heart most is the wonderful leadership displayed by our own students here today,” Wojcik said. “They have this down to a science and watching them step up to guide visitors through the building to their respective rooms, handle obstacles without reaching out to an adult, and make the experience memorable for all who participated is handsdown what I am most proud of.” Glenbrook South senior Connor Yoon plays the trombone during the North Shore Jazz Fest on Saturday, Jan. 20, at the high school.
