A musical treat is in store for area jazz lovers as guest artist Mary Fettig takes the stage with the award-winning Davis High School Jazz Band at the 26th annual Jazz Extravaganza concert.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St.

Fettig has the distinction of being the first female instrumentalist in the Stan Kenton Band, and she is a well-known saxophonist/flutist and educator in the Bay Area. She also has recorded with jazz artists Tito Puente, Marian McPartland, Flora Purim and Nnenna Freelon.

Her recent CD as band leader, “Brazilian Footprints,” was released to critical acclaim and was hailed as “one of the most joyous and purely listenable recordings of the year” by Brad Walseth of jazzchicago.net, and “what upscale jazz should look to if it wants to get it right” by Chris Spector of Midwest Record.

In addition to her jazz talents, she is a veteran performer in San Francisco musical theater orchestras, regularly performs with the San Francisco Symphony in pop and jazz roles, and is on the faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

The Nov. 18 performance promises a full evening of exciting jazz, pairing this guest artist with the dynamic DHS Jazz Band. Featured musical selections will include “Strike Up The Band,” “Indian Summer,” “Darn That Dream,” “Sail Away” and “Caravan.”

A suggested donation of $8 general, $6 for senior citizens and students and $20 for a family will be accepted at the door.
