Missouri Western hosted a music festival for high school students on Saturday. Western's Department of Music invited local high school students to the Annual Jazz Festival. Band ensembles arrived in St. Joseph, jazzed up for the event.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Saint Louis Brass is hosting a free public workshop this Saturday before their performance at the Missouri Theatre. The group will offer insight on their history and the instruments they play.
Music programs from Central and Lafayette High Schools in St. Joseph are going to perform at a distinguished conference later this month. It's the first time any St. Joseph school has been invited to perform.
Drew Ellis has been in his fair share of bands in and around St. Joseph
for more then a decade. Since first picking up the bass and joining
Vital Revery in 1997, he has gone on to be a part of Bear In The Ball
Pit!, Same Sick Feeling, I Will Strike You and upwards to 20 plus bands
and music projects. His latest experimentation, Str816, is a departure
from his pop punk past but one listen to ?The Most Beautiful Girl in the
World? or the just released ?Under The Stars? shows that young Mr.
Ellis may have indeed found his calling.
Anyone that knows me with any degree of familiarity knows that an
acapella/barbershop quartet concert is not the kind of live performance
you are likely to see me attending. Much less enjoying. But for The
Blanks I made an exception.
Much like Rob Gordon, owner of Championship Vinyl, in Nick Hornby?s novel, High Fidelity,
I am fascinated, nay, obsessed with lists. This by no means is a new
affliction. As a child, I rated the Top 5 or 10 of everything: movies,
comic book superheroes, G. I. Joe action figures, Star Wars villains; it didn?t matter what it was, I rated it.
