The NorMan Jazz Festival is being held in Thompson this weekend. Music teacher Anna Harrison says they are taking two bands this year one from Hapnot and one from Ruth Betts McIsaac and they travel to Thompson to participate in clinics and workshops all day Saturday and then a couple of workshops on Sunday morning and they do a performance and then head home. She adds the clinicians come from Brandon and Winnipeg and they are professional jazz musicians and jazz educators so it’s a really great opportunity for the students to learn about jazz music.
All northern students attending will present a public concert to wrap up the weekend Sunday at 1:30 at the R.D. Parker Collegiate in Thompson.
