SJZ High School All Stars, conducted by Dr. Aaron Lington, perform as part of the Season of Hope series at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph in downtown San Jose.
High School All Stars is a regional, audition-based music education program for students who are interested in the study and performance of jazz. The program includes a large ensemble and a combo, and is designed to help students achieve a mastery of improvisation techniques while advancing their knowledge of music theory, arranging, composition, performance, and jazz history. Participation includes weekly rehearsals at San José State University and performances in professional venues.
Season of Hope is a collaboration between various arts organizations and the San Jose Cathedral Foundation’s Office of Social Ministry. Their series of collaborations run from December 12-23. All performances are free.
