(Enterprise file)

The Nyssa High School Jazz Band will hold a fundraiser Saturday, April 23, at the school cafeteria.

A gourmet taco bar by Chef Freddie of NSD Food Services opens at 6 p.m., followed by a concert by the Jazz Band.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward the costs of traveling to Gresham in May for the band members to attend the Mt. Hood Jazz Festival at Mt. Hood Community College. The festival is an excellent opportunity for students to learn, experience and participate in jazz. Tickets for the dinner concert are $15 and are available from Jazz Band students or the Nyssa High School office.
