A note from "G"
The Niles North Vocal Jazz program is celebrating 25 years and is proud to maintain the reputation of cutting edge and exciting performances. Every year the students rise to the challenge despite a variety of hurdles. One of the most difficult obstacles comes from recent budget cuts to the program along with the notable economic changes within the community. Luckily, the history and strength of our program has generated an amazing effort by VJ alumni to raise funds to offset the gap. Now more than ever, there is a growing need to raise money to help students afford the annual retreat, our stage outfits, travel, and the annual Vocal Jazz Night. It is tough to decide where to trim such a great program and still give students the same amazing experience. With alumni and community support, we won’t have to make those hard decisions. Please consider making a donation. The amount can be modest, grand or anything in-between. The true value of performance is in the ability to share the experience.
