Additional Information

Students are responsible for getting their own instruments, music, mutes, etc. to Morningside and back to North High School. Do not leave instruments in your car overnight. Most evening events have a charged admission so I recommend having some money for the tickets. I highly encourage you to come and watch the events. These concerts will have some of the best jazz musicians in the upper Midwest performing. Please take full advantage. All friends and family are invited to our performances. Please come and support!
