The Chesterton High School Music Department will once again present the Big Band Bash. An evening of music and dancing that showcases the students of the Chesterton High School Jazz Ensemble. 

 The “Big Band Bash” offers the public a nostalgic dance reminiscent of those held during the 1930’s and 40’s. The music selections will include melodies from the “American Song Book” arranged in the style of the dance tunes from the Big Band era. In addition to the well-known melodies from the Glenn Miller, Stan Kenton, Louis Prima, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Woody Herman bands, the CHS Jazz Ensemble will fill out the evening’s dance book with some familiar offerings from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. 

 This year, the Big Band Bash is a two-night event that is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, February 3 and 4 in the Commons Area of Chesterton High School. Music and dancing will begin at 7:00 p.m. Hors d’oeuvres are available as part of the ticket price, with coffee and soft drinks available for a nominal fee. Patrons may enter the northeast side of the building through Entrance #31. All seats are reserved.
