This years D.T.H.S. Jazz Show was held on Friday May 21st and Saturday May 22nd.  For those who are unfamiliar about what Jazz Show is, the Jazz Show would be best described as a Comedy/Variety Show with music provided by the D.T.H.S. Jazz Band.  All of the skits are written and performed by either D.T.H.S. Music Department members or by music director Mr. Richard Benzik.  The Dwight Junior High Jazz Band makes special guests appearances and plays two Jazz tunes lead by Ms. Kim Doyle.  Songs that were performed by the D.G.S. Jazz Band were "Just Before I Close My Eyes" and "Stick Shift".  Songs that were performed by the D.T.H.S. Jazz Band were as follows:  "Stairway to Heaven", "Bang, Bang", "Pick Up The Pieces", "25 or 6 to 4",  "The Pink Panther"  and "The Lady is a Tramp" featuring Ms. Carol Coulter on vocals.  The show also had two other musical presentations.  First Kendel and Jenna performed a vocal and dance duet to the song "All That Jazz" from the Musical "Chicago" and later in the show, a performance by Local "Battle of the Bands" winner "BULL" which features four high school students. (Joey, Ben, Andy and Tim)  The entire show is put together in 4 intense, short rehearsal days (Monday-Thursday) with opening night on Friday. The Jazz Show is always performed on the last day for seniors and is the highlight of the year for those who attend and take part in it.  On the following pages there are pictures taken from the Jazz Show for you to enjoy.
