April 2, 2019 – Bradley MS Jazz Band 1 Invited to Perform at the 2019 Midwest International Convention in Chicago

The Bradley Middle School band program is excited to announce that Bradley Jazz Band 1 has received an invitation to perform at “The Midwest Clinic and Convention” in Chicago, IL in December 2019! For each of the past two years, only one middle school jazz band in the country has performed at Midwest. Bradley Middle School has a tradition of excellence in jazz education and performance. The Bradley Jazz legacy began in the early 1980s with Larry Schmidt and Ed Geimer who are both fantastic jazz musicians in their own right. Their hard work and musicianship laid the ground work for what the program is today.  The Bradley Band program, under the direction of Emily Gurwitz, Director of Bands and Karlos Elizondo, Assistant Director of Bands and director of Jazz Band 1, consists of beginning band classes, concert band classes, and two jazz band classes. The Bradley Band’s total enrollment is over 300 students. Both jazz bands have a long-standing tradition of winning jazz contests, particularly the annual Fiesta Jazz Festival. The Bradley Band students, instructors, clinicians, administrators, and community members are very excited about this incredible opportunity for our band program! Go Bradley Band!
