Garfield Vocal Jazz @ Lionel Hampton 2011

We just got back from the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow, Idaho on the University of Idaho's Campus.  The festival started Wednesday and will continue until Sunday.  Our son Ian is one of the members of a 20 person Vocal Jazz Group directed by Carol Burton.  They had adjudicated performances starting at 8:15 am in the morning.  Some students performed solo pieces that were judged and then the Vocal Jazz group performed 3 pieces in the multi-mic division.  Garfield did well enough that two students Lucie Saether and Otienno Stevens-Terry were asked to perform their solo pieces at the large afternoon performances at the Kibbe Dome and Garfield Vocal Jazz was asked to sing "Blues for Stephanie".   Congratulations to Garfield Vocal Jazz and Director Carol Burton!

Here is the sketch of the Multi-mic performance in Haddock Hall.
