Recording Session
May 2022

It took three years to return to the recording session, and it felt great to do so!  For pretty much everyone, this was a new experience - and most alumni view the recording session as the highlight of the entire year.  And of course, the last time we play together as the 2021-22 YJED band.In the end, a good time was had by all!

Jazz Showcase
May 2022

Our last public performance of the 2021-22 edition of YJED ended up being at the historic Jazz Showcase.  We had the privilege to open for the Bob Lark Alumni band, so we took the stage knowing the house had many of Chicago's top jazz musicians on hand awaiting their set (not to speak of the spirits of all those who came before playing here, shaping the music we know as jazz)

Spring Concert
May 2022 - pt 1

Even a COVID postponement of a couple weeks didn't disrupt the band's 2nd concert, held at Immanuel Lutheran in Crystal Lake.  Guest Artist Kirk Garrison brought game (as of course he would), and a good time was had by all. We had the traditional official farewells by the seniors (even though they would play at the Showcase and do the recording session). (Pt 1 of 2)

Winter Concert
January 2022

Two years after doing our first concert in Thulin Auditorium at Judson University, we finally get to return!  Our Guest Artist, Adam Larson, had done a MasterClass for YJED during the COVID time, and had also composed the 2019 ILMEA audition tune.  It felt great to be back!
