EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)- If you're looking for a little music and dance this weekend, several local high school students have some plans for you!
This weekend, the North High School band is hosting the Big Band Bash! The North High School Jazz Ensemble, Northstar Middle School Jazz Ensemble and Dr. Phil Ostrander from UW-Eau Claire will all performing.
There will also be swing dancing, silent auction, raffle, and plenty of desserts to go around!
Tickets are $10 at the door and $5 for students. It kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday, may 17th in the NHS Commons.
Then, a few weeks later on June 2nd, the students are hosting another fundraising event! It's a unique opportunity and the first time the band is partnering up to host a Mattress Sale event. This event runs from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. again in the NHS Commons.
Both events are raising funds to support the NHS Band Parents Organization. They help to provide scholarships to music camps, help to purchase musical instruments and equipment, and help run our many music events at school.
