Jazz and Java features the Pacific Academy Middle School and High School jazz ensembles (jazz bands and vocal jazz). Each year we bring in a new professional guest musician to inspire the students and show the potential for greatness. You’re invited to join us for an evening of great performances from all of PA’s jazz groups, along with bottomless coffee/tea and a gourmet dessert.
