  • New York City or Bust!

    WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 2013 - Next year, the White Oak Jazz Ensemble will be playing at the New York City Jazz Festival on April 11-14, 2014. This will be very exciting, as the band will be performing in the Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center, which overlooks Central Park.

    In order to make the trip affordable for each member to go, we are setting a goal of raising $10,000. If you feel led to donate any amount or you know of a business that is willing to donate, please go to the donation link located on our website. Any individual who donates at least $20, will have the chance to win a brand new, 16 GB, Black iPad Mini that was recently donated to us. For each increment of $20 you donate, your name will be entered in to a raffle to win this prize. For example, if you donate $40, your name will be entered twice. We will let you know when the cut-off date to donate to be entered in to the drawing will be as the time gets closer.

    Special thanks is given to the alumni of our band program who have helped to create a great program and make this happen. To learn more about the New York City Jazz Festival, please click HERE. Thanks for your support!
