The Pottstown Schools Music Association is holding its first Jazz and; Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, April 20, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Goodwill Fire Station on High St.
Proceeds from this event will benefit ALL district music students.
Posted here is a copy of the ticket order form that was also sent home with most students.
If you don't have a student in Pottstown schools but would love to come, you can print out this page or, better yet, click on this link and you can print out a clean copy of the form to turn in to a music teacher in any Pottstown school.
Tickets are $8 for adult, $5 for ages 6-10, and 5 and under are free.
Please return your order form by Friday, April 5, which will help the volunteers prepare in advance.
The dinner includes: spaghetti, meatballs, bread and butter, coffee, tea, iced tea, lemonade and dessert.
I have not yet heard the high school jazz band perform this year, so I'm looking forward to it. Plus, as some of you who may have seen me lumbering down the street can attest, I love pasta.
And, if you want a taste of what kind of entertainment you will enjoy, here is a video of the Pottstown Middle School Jazz Band performing "Smackwater Jack" at Arcola Middle School during a recent competition there.
They received a rating of "excellent" as I recall, as well as being named the best trombone section.
And, if that wasn't enough to whet your appetite, for both more jazz and a delicious spaghetti dinner (did we mention they've got meatballs?!?) here is another taste of the entertainment.
This is "I've Got Rhythm," again from the middle schoolers.
So come on down. Enjoy some dinner, see a show and help promote music education in Pottstown. It's a win/win/win!
