Singers, dancers, musicians, and actors will appear on stage for three more performances of West Hartford’s Hall High School nautical-themed “PnJ on a Boat” Pops ‘N Jazz extravaganza.
This year’s show, which has received rave reviews, opened on March 10, 2023 and organizers said they are looking to fill the auditorium and limited tickets remain for the final three shows, scheduled for Thursday, March 16, Friday, March 17, and Saturday, March 18. All performances begin at 7:30 p.m., and
Thursday’s extra special performance will include a guest appearance by Marcus Printup, internationally-acclaimed trumpeter in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
Guests are invited to “sail away” during the performances which differ somewhat each night and feature performances in various settings and collaborations by Hall’s Concert Jazz Band, Jazz Band, Jazz Dancers, Choraliers (singers), and I Giovani Solisti (strings), as well as elementary and middle school ensembles and guest artists.
“Audiences this year will be treated to our performers sailing through one of our most incredible lineups of guest artists, an amazingly strong and dedicated group of musicians, dancers, and actors, while upholding and adding to the 65-year tradition of Pops ‘n Jazz,” said James Antonucci, Hall High School’s director of Bands and Jazz Bands.
Tickets to Pops ‘n Jazz, for assigned seats, are available online here. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for students. Tickets can also be purchased in person at the Hall High School box office, which is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from noon-2:30 p.m., and Wednesday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
