Goshen Youth Jazz Band performs at Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.

April 17, 2012 - On April 5, the Goshen Youth Jazz Band, conducted by Ellen Dickinson, performed at the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.

This year's National Cherry Blossom Festival was the centennial celebration of when our nation's Capitol received the cherry blossom trees as a gift. In 1912, a gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees was bestowed on Washington, DC by Tokyo, Japan.

The Jazz Band submitted a demo tape and application in order to take part in the festival, and were invited to attend. They performed at the Canon Performance Stage at Sylvan Theater, on the grounds of the Washington Monument.
