Jazz band receives new music through grant

Thanks to a generous grant provided by the Owen County Community Foundation. Owen Valley's jazz band has received four new charts for their music library. The grant was part of the Owen County Community Foundation's Teacher Mini Grant program. The Owen Valley Jazz has performed multiple times over the summer in events around Owen County, including the Arts in the Park program at McCormick's Creek State Park, the Owen County Fair, on the 1st teacher day for Spencer Owen Community Schools, and for the Owen County Preservation Society. The band will next perform at the Fall band concert on October 2nd. The new charts include jazz standards such as St. Thomas, a transcription for jazz band of Libertango, and two pop infused selections by Blood, Sweat, and Tears and Earth, Wind and Fire (God Bless the Child and In The Stone).
