A concert was presented by the Vallejo Jazz Society Quartet at Pennycook Elementary on March 21, 2014 to introduce the children to jazz. The students of Ms. Heidl’s third grade class at Pennycook Elementary rewarded our musicians with a packet of hand printed ‘thank you’ notes decorated with musical notes, instruments, and hearts.
The musicians playing for the children were Bryan Girard on Saxophone, Dalt Williams on bass. Bob Nadler on drums and Wayne De La Cruz on keyboards. Special guest, local vocalist Frankye Kelly, appeared and introduced the kids to scat singing. Here is a photo of the concert followed by a few examples of the children’s thank you notes in their own handwriting.
