-- Nearly 60 Sunapee Middle High School Music students recently traveled to The Capitol Center for the Arts to attend Stolen Moments: The First 100 Years of Jazz presented by “Jazz Reach”.

"Jazz Reach” performances are designed to introduce audiences to jazz music’s rich history. Their performances feature a live quintet, narrator and video presentation. The performance highlighted the interplay between the jazz movement and the evolution of American culture throughout the 20th century. The musicians and narrator emphasized the ways in which jazz has acted as a unifying force, bridging cultural, ethnic, and economic differences; stimulated cultural fusions and new stylistic idioms; exemplified democratic ideals; and influenced other genres of music. The Sunapee students were great ambassadors for their community and demonstrated very professional behavior during all phases of the field trip. The trip was organized by the SMHS Music Department.
