The winner of this giveaway will receive two tickets to Wilde Lake High School's Jazz @ the Lake Concert! This year's concert features Latin jazz great Paquito D’Rivera. will perform on Saturday, January 24, 2015 (7:30 pm) at the Jim Rouse Theatre in Columbia, MD. The 12-time Grammy-winning saxophone and clarinet master will headline at the 11th annual Jazz @ The Lake Concert, accompanied by noted jazz musicians Diego Urcola (trumpet), Alex Brown (piano), Zach Brown (bass), Eric Doob (drums), and Paulo Stagnaro (percussion).
You'll also hear the award-winning Wilde Lake High School Jazz Ensemble. They'll open the show and perform a joint piece with D’Rivera. And yes, I stole Wilde Lake High School Band Director's Lewis Dutrow's comment that that you're in for a "hot night of cool jazz", because it's just too good to pass up.
Tickets for this musical extravaganza are $25.00 apiece, with proceeds supporting the Wilde Lake High School Music Department. But, if you win, you and your guest will pick up your tickets at the door for a jazz-lover's paradise.
