The SSC Jazz Festival is a one-day, non-competitive educational festival celebrating jazz and jazz education. Each band performs for and receives a performance clinic by the guest artists.
The festival concert will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 11th, in the Kindig Performing Arts Center of South Suburban College, and will feature the SSC Jazz Orchestra with guest artists Jim Cooper and Sam Hankins, and special guests from the area.
This year’s concert will be dedicated to the memory and legacy of Mr. Keith Anderson, long time music educator, advocate, and mentor. Mr. Anderson directed the bands at Hillcrest High School in County Club Hills from 1993-2006, after which he served as the Director of Fine Arts for Bremen High School District 228. Before arriving at Hillcrest, Anderson was an elementary teacher at Lincoln Elementary School in District #147. Mr. Anderson’s bands from Hillcrest High School were regular participants in the SSC Jazz Festival, and Mr. Anderson himself has been a festival clinician.
