Denton High hosting jazz concert on May 27

Denton High School’s jazz bands will host a concert with a special guest artist at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 27, at the school’s auditorium.

The concert will feature University of North Texas instructor and guitarist Noel Johnston alongside Denton High’s Jazz Bands, with tickets costing $5 for adults and $4 for students. Proceeds directly benefit the school’s jazz program, which operates on donations and revenue from concerts.

Johnston, a staple in the Dallas-Fort Worth area jazz scene, has released multiple albums and been featured on more than 40 albums. He routinely plays at the city’s annual Denton Arts & Jazz Festival.
