“Blues on 26th” Jazz Evening

The York House Music Department held an intimate evening of music featuring our jazz band, Ragazza, Chorista and Bambina. The Gail Ruddy Foyer was transformed into a cabaret-style jazz club. Guests had a chance to mingle, and sample delicious hors d’oeuvres, all while listening to jazz standards, new favourites, and solo performances from our talented musicians and singers.

This evening gives our Senior students the chance to perform in a more intimate and casual setting. View the full photo gallery and enjoy some of the highlights from the performances in this playlist:

Celebration of Community

This annual event is the one time during the year that the entire community comes together. It’s a treat to hear our budding musicians perform in such a glorious venue, and to celebrate the spirit of the season together. View highlights from all the performances below.
