True Blue Jazz presents Intro to Jazz to Seaford High students

Cartoon Christmas Trio to perform favorite holiday tunes
December 6, 2017

True Blue Jazz held a holiday-flavored Intro to Jazz program Dec. 8 at Seaford High School in Seaford.

Peggy Raley and Eddie Sherman hosted the program, designed to pique the interest of attending students in jazz, the one true American art form. The program was presented by True Blue Jazz with a grant from McDonald's of Seaford.

Raley and Sherman as co-producers were accompanied by three friends of True Blue Jazz who are musicians and educators from the Wilmington/Philadelphia area. They perform together regularly during the holiday season in schools across the Delaware Valley as The Cartoon Christmas Trio. After a few opening remarks and maybe a song from Raley and Sherman, Seaford High students were entertained by the trio with songs from Christmas cartoon classics.

The  program was followed by a jazz workshop with the Seaford High Band students, conducted by Eddie Sherman, Peggy Raley and The Cartoon Christmas Trio.
