November 16, 2017

The Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society (STJS) celebrated young jazz musicians on Sunday, November 12th, at their monthly Jazz Concert at the Sacramento Elks Lodge.  Regional youth jazz band, Sax By Popular Demand from Davis, California and The New Traditionalists (TNT) high school honor jazz band performed on the main stage.  Hot City Jazz Band also performed.

The STJS also presented its annual Music Lessons Award winners for 2017-18. Twenty-five students from elementary through 10th grade received $300 each for private music lessons.

The lively jam session room, called the Tailgate, was open to any and all young musicians who want to practice tunes with other jazz musicians.

All youth 18 and under were admitted free of charge, but anyone bringing a musical instrument to donate that day received free admission.
