The Weekly Vista - - News - Staff Re­port

An­dante Mu­sic Club of Bella Vista hosted the Bentonville High School Jazz Band at its Sept. 4 meet­ing. Philip Shew­maker, as­so­ciate di­rec­tor of bands, con­ducted 23 mem­bers who played a va­ri­ety of fa­vorite jazz tunes, with “Come, Fly with Me,” “In a Sen­ti­men­tal Mood,” “April in Paris” all played to a very ap­pre­cia­tive, mu­sic-lov­ing au­di­ence.

The An­dante Club found that the jazz band has some ex­tremely tal­ented mu­si­cians. In fact, four of its mu­si­cians have been se­lected for the elite, 185-piece Macy’s Great Amer­i­can Band, and will march in Macy’s Thanks­giv­ing Day Pa­rade in New York City on Thanks­giv­ing morn­ing.

This con­cert was free and open to the pub­lic, as are all An­dante pro­grams. The ob­jec­tive of the club is to pro­mote in­ter­est and par­tic­i­pa­tion in, as well as un­der­stand­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of, mu­sic to res­i­dents in Bella Vista and neigh­bor­ing com­mu­ni­ties. Con­tact Betty Pierce, VP, at piercebl834@att.net for more club in­for­ma­tion. The next An­dante Mu­sic Club meet­ing will be Oct. 2. Meet­ings are at High­land Chris­tian Church, 1500 For­est Hills Blvd., Bella Vista.
