Penn High School Music Instructor Aaron Griesser has been awarded a Martin's Super Markets "One School at a Time" $1,000 grant. The grant will be applied to the "Evening of Jazz" concert.
The "One School at a Time" program aims to help teachers provide better education to students. According to Griesser, one of Penn's jazz band parents, Clare Roach, was instrumental in completing the grant application.
The grant money will be used to purchase sound equipment for the Penn jazz ensembles, including professional-level microphones and mic stands. This will allow a more enjoyable listening experience for families at Penn's annual "Evening of Jazz" concert, which is one of the biggest events for the Penn band program. The grant will also further our mission of providing musical entertainment to the community with new sound equipment for performances.
"Evening of Jazz" will be presented on Thursday, May 13, at 6 p.m. at Central Park in Mishawaka.
