Feb. 21, 2005
The finalists for the Woody Herman-Sister Fabian Jazz Scholarship
award will be presented in performances during the sixth annual

Hosted by Marquette University, the free concert will be presented
at the Varsity Theatre. Performances will begin at 2:00 p.m.,
and will also feature the East Town Jazz Orchestra and the
Marquette University Jazz Ensemble.
The selected finalists were chosen based on their solo talent
presented during the performance of their individual high
school jazz ensembles at the 36 th Annual Jazz Invitational,
hosted at Marquette University. The scholarship finalists
are: Nate Gruber of Brookfield Central High School; Matt Kuehl,
of Oconomowoc High School; and Scott Janowiak of Marquette
University High School.
The event will include a silent auction featuring musical
items and instruments, the proceeds of which will benefit
the Woody Herman Scholarship. Donations to the Woody
Herman-Sister Fabian Scholarship will also be gladly accepted.
