The Basement: Jazz Cabaret

Click for more photos from The Basement.

The York House Music Department held an intimate evening of music featuring our Jazz Band, Ragazza and Bambina. Guests had a chance to mingle, enjoy a glass of wine and sample delicious hors d’oeuvres, all while listening to jazz standards, new favourites and solo performances from our talented musicians and singers.

This night was traditionally held at the now defunct Cellar Jazz Club. As of last year it has been held at YHS, where the foyer is transformed into a cabaret-style jazz club. “The Basement” gives our Senior students the chance to perform in a more intimate and casual setting.
