The day has finally arrived...

Tonight, Northwest Vista College student Jeané Gaines boards a night flight to São Paulo, Brazil for one intensive week of performance, learning, and forming lifelong friendships with fellow students from all over the world. All this is to take place at the annual meeting of the International Association of Schools of Jazz (IASJ).  She'll be joined by IASJ board member and Allstars program coordinator, Katchie Cartwright. The 2011 jazz meeting is to be held at the Souza Lima Conservatory of Music.

So much has transpired since the Alamo Colleges Jazz Allstars audition last November. Performances, workshops, gigs, bonding with the wonderful 2011 Alamo Allstars: Marco António Escobedo, Rene Pintor, Amanda Sanchez, Jessica Brandi Adams.

Jeané will report back after her trip, and share her experiences with her colleagues in this year's group and the next generation of Alamo Colleges Jazz Allstars. Stay tuned for more...

Nós desejamos o melhor para ela. Boa viagem!
