Jazz at the Bistro Performance – Sept. 25, 2016

The Webster Groves High School jazz bands were invited to perform September 25 at Jazz at the Bistro, one of the top jazz venues in the world, in midtown’s Grand Center district. All three Webster jazz bands rose to the occasion, providing a wonderful evening of music for friends and family in a swanky setting. Here’s hoping this becomes an annual event!
