We want to hear from you: please fill out this short survey

Join Ben Lawson, the director of Redmond High School’s jazz band, for music, memories and the meaning of being a part of a jazz band.

Nora, the protagonist in Laila Lalami’s The Other Americans is a musician and composer. As a student, Nora was a member of her high school’s jazz band. For her, jazz band provided a creative outlet as well as a community. Like Nora, the student musicians in Ben Lawson’s jazz band are motivated not only by music, but also by each other. Being a part of the jazz band requires commitment (pre-covid, they met during 0 period … before 1st period) and the love of being a part of a musical team. During this presentation, Mr. Lawson shares some performances from the group as well as memories from some of the outstanding musicians that he has mentored over the years.
