The Jazz & Dessert Night is a showcase evening of the Jazz Band and Jazz Choir programs at Regent Christian Academy. The vision of Music Director, Adrian Falcon. This presentation also featured the Vancouver Groove Orchestra with frontman Phil Vanderveen. The evening was an opportunity for students to feature their talents playing alongside inspiring professionals. The audience was seated for a white linen affair enjoying delicate desserts along with the swinging sounds of Jazz.
The school’s grade 11/12 Stagecraft students assembled the 40’x20’ modular Smartstage system in the school gymnasium. The students then used two-by-four lumber and painted coroplast to construct a focal star set piece which was over 28’ feet wide and 14’ feet high.
Production Elements provided eight automated moving lighting fixtures (Inno Color Beam LED’s and Accuscan 250’s) and 12”x12’ box truss support with heavy ST-180 crank operated lift towers. Production Elements offered technical support and expertise while students remained hands-on, on virtually every aspect of the load-in and show.
