DHS Jazz Band prepares tribute to Lange

The Davis High School Jazz Band, conducted by Fred Lange, entertains an audience at the French Market in New Orleans' French Quarter, where the band recently participated in a jazz festival. Local jazz enthusiasts have the opportunity to hear the musicians play at the upcoming “Jazz on a Summer’s Eve XXII” concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 1. Joyce Hamaguchi/Courtesy photo

The Davis High School Jazz Band will perform its final concert of the year, “Jazz on a Summer’s Eve XXII,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 1, at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St. This will be the final Jazz Band concert for director Fred Lange, who is retiring at the end of the school year.

A special treat for the audience will be the premier performance of an original jazz composition commissioned in honor of Lange and composed by noted jazz composer/arranger Eric Richards of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Music.

Richards will perform at the concert with the Jazz Band, with Lange at the podium. The commission was arranged by members of the DHS Band Boosters, to provide a lasting tribute to the contributions Lange has made to music education.

A grant from the Davis School Arts foundation provided partial support for the commission and for clinics that Richards will conduct with the Davis High bands during his visit.

The DHS Jazz Band recently returned from performing at the French Quarter Jazz Festival in New Orleans. Band Booster president John Horn, who accompanied the group, reported that the trip was a big success.

One group of professional jazz musicians heard the band playing and came to investigate, thinking it was another professional group. “They were blown away when they saw it was our high school Jazz Band!” Horn said.

The public is invited to enjoy the concert free of charge, and to convey their thanks to Lange for bringing many years of music to the Davis schools and community. Audience members who wish to support the high school band program or to contribute to music scholarships in Lange’s honor may leave a donation in the lobby.

“Please allow extra time for parking, as much of the main lot near Brunelle Performance Hall will be closed for a construction project,” a news release said.
