(It was a night of Jazz, Christmas music and Jazzy Christmas Music)….It has become a tradition.
It was the 25th Annual Jimmie Cannon’s Valley Jazz Holiday Concert. It was held at the Jimmie Cannon Performing Arts Theater at Southwest High School. The Theater was named after the long time music teacher and founder of Valley Jazz. The event is the ensemble’s annual Christmas Present to the Valley. The concert is free every year, but participants are asked to bring a couple of canned goods to donate to the Imperial Valley Food Bank. Also Saturday they held the 4th Annual Hank Keltz Memorial Scholarship awards ceremony.
