About

Pops ’n Jazz Eurotour 2024 features almost 60 student performers, including the school’s Concert Jazz Band, Jazz Dancers, and Choraliers (singers). The program offers an array of American jazz classics from all eras, performed in big band and combo settings, highly choreographed production numbers, and featured solo performances. The show is known for its eclectic blend of music, ranging from traditional and progressive jazz, to pop-rock and Broadway.

The electrifying theme of this year’s show is “PnJ in Vegas.” Take a gamble and attend multiple times as the program varies slightly each night. Audiences will be treated to traditional jazz repertoire such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, NY Voices, Horace Silver, Dizzy Gillespie, Thad Jones, Billy Strayhorn, Jim McNeely, and Charles Mingus. Broadway-style selections from Lippa’s Wild Party, Frankie Valli’s Beggin’ along with contemporary cutting edge artists such as Lawrence and David Davis are included. And no trip under the neon would be complete without selections from today’s great Las Vegas strip performers: Lady Gaga and Michael Bublé!

In a triumphant return to European live performances after years of pandemic-related disruptions, Pops ‘n Jazz Eurotour 2024 promises to thrill overseas audiences for the first time since 2018. “Audiences will be knocked out with one of our most exciting musical offerings in the past ten years, representing a great variety of jazz, Broadway, and contemporary artists encompassing our incredibly strong 60 student cast that will only continue the amazing lineage of Hall’s 66-year tradition of Pops ’n Jazz,” noted Mr. James Antonucci, Hall High School’s Director of Bands and Jazz Bands.
