The 16th Annual Whidbey Jazz Concert is at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 1 in the South Whidbey High School auditorium.

The annual assemblage includes high school and middle school jazz bands from South Whidbey, Coupeville and Oak Harbor.

Proceeds from the ticket sales provide college scholarships for selected seniors who are graduating to continue their musical education.

Sponsored by the Whidbey Island Jazz Society, these yearly concerts have generated over $80,000 in scholarships.

In addition, large donations from jam sessions at Flyers in Oak Harbor have helped generate jazz enthusiasm for all.

Tickets are available at Click Music and Whidbey Party Store in Oak Harbor, and the Moonraker in Langley.

Tickets will also be available at the door before the show.

For additional information, contact Jerry Jones at 360-679-2066.
