Let's Swing Together
Published: May 09, 2017
May 9 at 7pm Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School Auditorium
Big band jazz and swing fans, this is your chance to be entertained by two generations of musicians simultaneously in one big concert! Thanks to a grant from the Ohio Arts Council the Cleveland TOPS Swingband and the Brecksville Broadview Heights Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th grade jazz band kids will appear in a FREE concert at the Brecksville Broadview Heights High School auditorium on Tuesday, May 9 at 7 pm.
The evening is called, “Let’s Swing Together!” It’s an intergenerational concert featuring the Middle School students and the Cleveland TOPS Swingband.
The idea for the concert was conceived by Steve Paciorek, director of the City of Brecksville Human Services Center, and Amy Washabaugh, director of the City of Broadview Heights Human Services Center. Together they procured grant money from the Ohio Arts Council which is designated for engaging the senior population through the arts.
The Cleveland TOPS Swingband is a group of mostly retired professionals that includes music educators, area pit orchestra veterans and musicians with various band and orchestra backgrounds. Together the members of TOPS (Tough Old Pros) have over 1200 (!!) years of combined musical experience. TOPS is an eighteen piece big band with three vocalists. Their primary goal is to serve up a familiar repertoire of music that brought great fun and excitement to today’s seniors back in the day.
Meanwhile Scott Hanna, Director of the BBH Middle School Bands loved the idea and committed the school’s jazz band to join in the fun. He established the band as an after school activity with participation by audition. The students learn the basics of jazz improvisation and the culture of jazz music and play at least three shows during the school year.
And now the kids get to play with and learn from the “Tough Old Pros” in concert together on Tuesday, May 9 at 7 pm on the Brecksville Broadview Heights High School stage. Who knows, the ghosts of Glenn Miller, the Dorsey brothers, Benny Goodman and Stan Kenton might be sitting in the back smiling.
