One of the most successful activities that is organized and run by RJS each spring is the Annual Youth Band Concert held in the Mt. Shasta Mall. In 2016 we held our Sixteenth Annual Youth Band Concert and bands from area middle and high schools, from Anderson to Shasta Lake participating. This is a great opportunity for you to see and hear our youths show you their talents and what amazing musical talents they have right here in our community.
RJS, in conjunction with the concert, produces a concert program that lists sponsors in the area who have made a contribution to continue the musical education of Redding’s youth. RJS also holds a raffle at the concert to raise additional funds for the bands performing. Both the program and raffle has allowed RJS to make a direct contribution each year to all the schools performing.
Since the event began in March 2000 the Rivercity JAZZ Society and the area’s sponsors have donated over $11,000.00 to the school’s music program.
If you are in the Redding area, come and listen to these young musicians – they are a delight.
