The Medfield High School Alumni Association has donated $1,000 to help with the Medfield High School Jazz Band music tour and cultural exchange trip in April.
The jazz band will hold a fundraising event on Saturday, Feb. 2 at The Center at Medfield to support the band's trip.
Tickets are available at Lord's and can also be purchased through Network for Good. Cost is $50 per person, or a discounted $45 per person if a table for eight is purchased (limited availability). Online convenience charges will apply.
The jazz band China trip features several days in Bengbu, which has hosted a student and staff exchange with Medfield Public Schools for the past four years. The band will share American Jazz with Bengbu music students, and in return, learn about Chinese music. The band will also travel to Shanghai and Beijing for other performances and cultural experiences.
The award-winning band is hoping to raise money to provide financial aid to band members who need it, cover expenses related to the music tour portion of the trip(such as instrument rentals), and reduce other trip costs if funds are available.
