Parents, students, teachers, and administrators in the Niskayuna school district are passionate supporters of the arts.  

On Thursday, April 3rd the Niskayuna Department of Music Education will proudly present their All-District Jazz Festival at 7 p.m. in the Niskayuna High School Auditorium. This year's festival will spotlight the district's 6-12 Jazz program, along with featured guest artist and conductor, Michael Davis. The concert is a culminating experience resulting in Mr. Davis's three-day Artist in Residency at Niskayuna.

This concert is free and open to the public. It will feature the Middle School Stage Band, Middle School Jazz Band, High School Studio Singers, the High School Stage Band, and the High School Jazz Ensemble.

The Friends of Music continues supporting enrichment opportunities for musicians beyond what is available through the schools. These student centered opportunities serve as a unique supplement and wonderfully aesthetic and memorable experience for Niskayuna students.
