Preservation Hall Foundation Hosts the Capital Focus Jazz Band

On Thursday, July 31st, we hosted the Capital Focus Jazz Band, the Youth Learning Program of the Potomac River Jazz Club. Led under the direction of Dave Robinson, the group marvelously played Traditional New Orleans Jazz standards with the utmost flair. The group is open to all young musicians in the greater Washington D.C. area, by audition, and provides young people with a positive means of expression, as well as self-confidence gained through professional performance experiences.

The Capital Focus Jazz Band raised funds for their trip via indiegogo, and also performed as a part of the Satchmo SummerFest. We can’t wait to see what their students do next!

Check out these photos of their performance at Preservation Hall.
