This year, a Jazz Concert featuring the Southington High School Jazz Band will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017 at 5 PM at the historic Meetinghouse of the First Congregational Church (FCC) of Southington. The twenty members of the Southington HS Jazz Band, under the direction of Brett Berardi, will be performing a full range of jazz selections. 

The concert's opening will be performed by 5-Metal Chemistry, a brass quintet which includes SHS Jazz Band alumni Evan Gray and Tim "Mr. J." Johnson. 

The concert will be followed by a Pancake Supper in the church hall at approximately 6:15 pm. Regular, banana, blueberry, and chocolate chip pancakes will be available along with coffee, tea, and juice. Eating pancakes and other fried foods in the days leading up to the start of Lent is a tradition that goes back to medieval times.

The event is jointly sponsored by the Southington HS Music Department and the FCC's Board of Music & Arts (BOMA). BOMA encourages fellowship and sponsors events which allow the community to share their vast talents.

The First Congregational Church of Southington is located at 37 Main Street, across from the town green. Parking is available in the public lots next door or across the street. Both the Meeting House and Memorial Hall are handicap accessible. In case of inclement weather please check or the SHSBands Facebook page for updates. No tickets are necessary, there will be a free-will offering for both the concert and supper. 

If attending the supper an RSVP is appreciated to or 860-628-6958.
