DGN Performs at Famed Chicago Jazz Showcase

Since it's inception in 1947, the Chicago's Jazz Showcase has played host to nearly every great jazz musician who has lived.  This evening, the students of the DGN Jazz Ensemble had the honor of opening for the great Mark Colby Quartet.  Congratulations to the DGN Jazz Ensemble members (some who are very recent alumni) for an incredibly inspiring and swing-a-licious set.  What a terrific performance; you made North High - and all associated with District 99 - proud tonight!
