Everybody was talking about the "We Haz Jazz" performance at Nikiski Middle-Senior High Auditorium on April 15.
The awesome stage show was performed by the fifth- and sixth-grade classes of Nikiski North Star School and "Wow!" did they get their audience full attention from the youngest to the oldest from its beginning to the last curtain call.
The fantastic energy these young performers generated transferred right on into their spellbound audience; toes were tapping, fingers snapping and smiles glowing to the very end of this historical story, while the historical story of jazz came alive.
Fifth- and sixth-grade teachers Ms. Matson, Ms. Kendall, Ms. Barnes and music teacher Ms. Pilattie deserve a great round of applause themselves for their dedication and hard work that went into this great production.
The spirit these students generated showed the confidence of their abilities that were instilled into them by these fabulous teachers as they displayed their talents on stage.
Thank you, Nikiski North Star, for a wonderful evening of entertainment.
