On April 07, 2017, the Eustis Band Program is proud to be having it’s 7th Annual Eustis Jazz Revue. A night that begins at 5:30. Featuring live Jazz performances by the award-winning Eustis Panther and Eustis Mustang Jazz Ensembles, student soloists and a special guest artist. The event is held at The Mount Dora Community Building located at 520 N Baker Street, Mount Dora, Florida 32757. This event is known to attract business and community members because 100% of the proceeds go directly back to the Eustis Music Program that provides music, equipment, and instruments for hundreds of children in Eustis, Florida’s 6th thru 12th grade. This fundraiser is a great way to get close and personal with the future of our community.
The Eustis Jazz Revue Concert begins at 7:00 p.m. This year’s guest performer is twenty-year-old Bianca Jade, an award-winning singer-songwriter. More information about her is found at www.biancajadesings.com.
Music Is Art for The Soul is an addition to this amazing fundraising event. It is a silent auction. The Silent Art Auction starts at 5:30 p.m. In addition to the silent auction, there will be refreshments, a raffle, and a ‘donate what you want’ table where you can donate items such as old art supplies and instruments that need a new home. No matter if you like Abstract, Minimalism, Graffiti Art, Postmodernism the artistic minds of the band students will show you just how inspired they really are.
For the month of February, the students paint original works of art. The music students were asked the question “What inspires you to learn music”? The answers have been anything from listening to Music Stars, furthering future education by receiving scholarships and Hailey Mach, a student who was inspired by the yearly school band round up program that Eustis Middle School Music Director Mr. Gerry Ricke organizes each year.
All materials are all donated by The Eustis Mustang Music Association. The art progress can be followed on www.facebook.com/groups/MusicIsArtForTheSoul. Tickets and information for The Annual Eustis Jazz Revue can be found at www.eustisband.com.
