The Chippewa Valley Jazz Orchestra is honored to welcome Wayne Bergeron to Regis High School for what’s shaping up to be a thrilling performance involving Memorial, Regis, and North’s big bands as well. CVJO is the valley’s leading jazz band and strives to unite musical entertainment with education. “I still have to pinch myself that CVJO’s first-ever guest artist is Wayne Bergeron!” said Geoff Peterson, CVJO member and percussionist. The world famous trumpeter is credited with playing in the Maynard Ferguson Band and performing with artists like Beyoncé, Michael Buble, and Christina Aguilera. Plus, he’s contributed to more than 300 films such as Toy Story 3, Despicable Me, Star Trek, and The Incredibles. He takes strides to enhance the skills and interests of young musicians as a dedicated clinician/educator and will be offering a free clinic to the public at Regis on Nov. 11 from 3:30 to 5pm.
