Big Joe Duskin Foundation Orchestra Presents: The Music of Cincinnatian Frank Foster
Fundraiser for the Deer Park Music Program - Donations Welcome!
On Wednesday, February 10 at 7 PM, please join the Deer Park High School Band for an evening of professional jazz! The Big Joe Duskin Foundation Orchestra is back for a second year and they’ll be taking over Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School’s Crawford Auditorium!
Providing musical education experiences to young musicians is a BIG part of the Big Joe Duskin Foundation’s mission.
While the tickets are free, we greatly encourage everyone to make a donation to help support our talented Deer Park student musicians!
Deer Park's jazz ensemble will perform the first few songs, then the Big Joe Duskin Foundation Orchestra will pay tribute to Cincinnati’s own saxophone legend Frank Foster. Foster was honored as a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master for his years of composing, arranging, and performing with the Count Basie Orchestra as well as his own ensembles.
With 20+ musicians all together, you can't help but have a great time! Currently the band will be comprised of many college professors, current educators, and legendary performers located in the tri-state area. All proceeds benefit the Deer Park High School music program!
This show is a fundraiser to help pay expenses for Deer Park's marching band, so donations are greatly appreciated!
