Spring Jazz Concert – Blues for Adeline
Last Friday, the Spring Jazz Concert was a magical night for all those in attendance. The Lakes Area Jazz group was an amazing start to the evening followed by the Middle School and Jazz I and II performances.
The majority of songs performed that evening were written by the University of Minnesota Associate Professor and Director of Jazz Studies, Dean Sorenson. Mr. Sorenson, who is a wonderful composer and player, also performed with the students.
The highlight of the evening was the premiere of “Blues for Adeline.” This piece was written by Mr. Sorenson in honor of Lee Leverson and the love of his life, wife Adeline. Mr. Leverson started the jazz program (stage band) 50 years ago. Congratulations to the music program on another outstanding and memorable concert!
