Student ensembles from Sycamore High School's music program are among the performers who will entertain at the music boosters' A Note to Remember event.

SYCAMORE – The Sycamore Music Boosters’ fifth annual “A Note to Remember” event will be held from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 at Blumen Gardens in Sycamore, featuring the acclaimed Chris Johnson Quartet.

Chris Johnson is a gifted trombonist with a sound deeply rooted in hard-swinging blues and gospel. He studied jazz at Northern Illinois University with Ronald Carter. Diana Carls, formerly known as Diana Morrasy, will also perform, as will the Sycamore High School Jazz Ensemble and other school ensembles. An elegant sweet and savory hors d’oeuvres buffet and coffee bar will be included. There will be numerous raffle and silent auction prizes, donated by local businesses.

A limited number of tickets are available for this adult-only event at $20, which includes musical entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and coffee bar. A cash bar will also be available.

Tickets are on sale now at all upcoming Sycamore concerts, at the Sycamore High School main office, via email at Note2Remember@gmail.com or by phone at 815-757-5688. For more information, visit ww.sycamoremusicboosters.com.
