Happy New Year!

The Sanford Jazz Ensemble is busily preparing for our February 8th concert in recognition of Black History Month. The playlist is still taking shape, but it’s safe to say that it will run the gamut from Duke Ellington to Smokey Robinson and include the vocal stylings of Ron Starks. See you next month!
