Denton High jazz bands hosting Nov. 19 fall concert

Denton High School jazz bands will host their fall concert on Nov. 19, with tickets on sale now for just $5 for adults and $3 for students and children.

Scheduled to take place at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium, the concert will feature special guest Jeffrey Barnes, a multi-instrumentalist best known for his 31 years in the Grammy-winning local band Brave Combo. Barnes remains a mainstay in the Denton music scene, regularly performing with area acts at events such as the Denton Jazz Festival.

Tickets can be ordered online at www.dentonjazz.org or at Denton High, located at 1007 Fulton St., the day of the event. Children ages 10 and younger receive free admission.

The concert is dedicated to the memory of Bill Stoneburner, a longtime Denton resident and Denton High graduate who was known for his commitment to Denton High music programs, especially his tireless support of the Bronco jazz bands.
