MUNSTER, Ind. (April 10, 2019) – The Munster High School auditorium will swell with the strains of big band swing, classical, and pop songs when jazz man Rob Verdi performs on May 10 at 7:00pm. A former junior high band teacher, Verdi will share the stage with the Munster High School band.
Verdi received his musical training at the Arizona State University School of Music in 1984. After a year of teaching junior high band, he relocated to Los Angeles for a full-time position with the Entertainment Division of the Walt Disney Company. His jazz band, the Side Street Strutters, entertained guests at Disneyland for 22 years.
In 2008, Verdi introduced audiences to Saxophobia, a show that introduced audiences to some of the most unusual saxophones ever manufactured, and payed tribute to artists who contributed to the development of jazz and the popularity of the saxophone. Verdi’s 2013 stage show, SAXsational, invited local schools to share the stage with him during formal concert presentations.
