May 15, 2006

Ketchikan, Alaska - Do you need to add a little fascinating rhythm to your step? Then all the rhythm you'll need to get those toes tapping will be provided to you Tuesday evening by several of Ketchikan's brightest youth jazz bands as they present their annual Jazz Night Concert.

Performing together each year, these youth jazz bands raise funds for a memorial scholarship that was established in the spring of 2000 in honor of Jerry Galley. Performing in the Jazz Night Concert Tuesday will be the talented youth jazz groups the Kayhi Jazz Ensemble, the Soundwaves Jazz Club and the Windjammers Jazz Club. Roy McPherson is the conductor.

Proceeds from the annual Jazz Night Concert will go the Jerry Galley Memorial Scholarship fund. According to Roy McPherson, the 2006 scholarship will be presented later this month to a promising student who plans to major in musical arts after graduation.

The concert will be held Tuesday, May 16th in the Ketchikan High School Auditorium and is scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm. Admission to the event is a donation to the scholarship fund.
