Photos from IB Jazz Performance
On Thursday March 20th, Norup was thrilled to host the Kris Johnson Quartet, a jazz combo from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's jazz education division. Kris, the group leader, is a very talented, up and coming trumpet player (see his website for more info--www.krisjohnsonmusic.com). Julie Smith and I brought them in as part of our 7th grader collaborative unit on jazz and the music of New Orleans. Here are some great pictures from the performance.
