Northview set to host 'Junkyard Jam' May 21

Thursday, May 5, 2011

The annual Northview High School "Junkyard Jam," a percussion concert and clinic for area youth, will take place at the high school auditorium Saturday, May 21, at 7 p.m.

The performance is open to the public and admission is $2.

The concert will feature members of the Northview percussion section and area K-8 students, who have pre-registered and participate in the clinic, which will take place prior to the concert.

The concert will feature performances on a variety of percussion instruments along with the big "Junkyard Jam," that will include all the clinic participants.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and the concert will begin at 7.

Featured music includes a snare drum solo by Northview sophomore Dan Reberger, some marching cadences by the NHS Drumline and a variety of pieces by the Northview Percussion Ensemble.

The clinic will run from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and is for all boys and girls in grades kindergarten-eighth-grade.

Check-in for the clinic is 9 a.m., and classes begin at 10.

Following lunch at noon, classes resume at 1 p.m., before a dress rehearsal at 2:30 p.m.

Those attending the clinic are asked to return to the auditorium at 6 p.m., for the evening concert.

Cost to attend the clinic is $27, which includes a performance T-shirt and a pair of sticks.

According to clinic coordinator Rusty Bottomley, music experience is not necessary to participate, as the clinic will center around introductory skills.

Each grade level will be featured with a piece that is appropriate to their age group.

For further information, call Bottomley at 448-2661 Ext. 1255 or e-mail bottomru@clay.k12.in.us.
