Ballard High School will join four other Seattle high schools tomorrow night at the Paramount Theater for the “Hot Java Cool Jazz” concert, sponsored by Starbucks. Other featured schools are Garfield, Roosevelt, Mountlake Terrace, and Edmonds-Woodway. The concert is Friday, March 30, at 7 p.m.
The ticket sales from each participating Starbucks (tickets available at Ballard’s Starbucks) will be donated back to Ballard High School’s music program. This is the 17th annual Hot Java Cool Jazz concert, and since 1995, the concert has raised more than $250,000 for participating schools’ music programs, according to Starbucks. Tickets cost $20 for all ages, and can be purchased at the Ballard Starbucks, at the Paramount Box Office, or online.
