Blue Hill Fair

Last week, for the 19th consecutive year, the George Stevens Academy (GSA) Jazz Band from Blue Hill performed during the Harness Races at the Blue Hill Fair on Saturday, September 1st. What fun!

GSAs music educator, Steve Orlofsky, was excited about the performance and very proud of the student’s musical abilities, their pride, loyalty & dedication to prepare 12 tunes in just 6 rehearsals (before school even starts!) and then perform in front of a huge Grand Stand audience!

Sounds like GSAs Jazz Band was off to a GREAT start! Please let us know how you started the year with your students so I can post your proud moments!
