DW Poppy’s first Jazz Cafe a great success

  It is two weeks in the rear-view mirror, but I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their work setting up for and performing at the first DW Poppy Jazz Cafe. Poppy Vox and the Junior and Senior Jazz Bands performed very well and it was a pleasure to hear the Jodi Proznick Quartet perform a phenomenal set in such a great venue.

 Thank you to Principal Balan Moorthy, Vice-Principal Gord Yu and Assistant Superintendent Claire Guy for joining us for the evening. Thanks to Jodi Proznick for working with the bands and performing that evening with Tilden Webb, Jesse Cahill and Steve Kaldestad. Thanks to the Fort Langley Community Improvement Association for hosting us at the Community Hall. Thanks to Rachel Bolongaro, Cathy Gropp and Karen McNeilly for assisting with the setup and a special thanks to Monty Hayter for streaming the event (here at www.dwpoppymusic.com/live) and Griffin Hayter for his phenomenal program and graphic design.

After such a great evening, I think it’s safe to say we look forward to seeing you at Jazz Cafe 2017!
