CMH Musicians Only High School Ensemble at Jazz in Cutler Park

The Catholic Memorial High School (CMH) Jazz Ensemble and Show Choir are confirmed to perform at the Les Paul bandshell in Cutler Park on Wednesday, June 8th at 7:00 pm. For the second year running, CMH student musicians will be the only high school ensemble to appear on the schedule.

“Jazz in Cutler Park offered area high schools the opportunity to perform in their summer series, and we just jumped at the chance.” said CMH instrumental and choral director Pete Lange. “It is an honor to showcase our students’ hard work and talent to the public.”

Twenty-four members of the CMH Jazz Ensemble will be featured at Wednesday’s concert, including two CMH Alumni, Philip Engsberg ’09 on the saxophone and Samuel Engsberg ’10 on the trumpet. Eleven members of the CMH Show Choir will also be performing.

Lange, a working musician, has substantial influence on the local jazz scene. The Pete Lange Quartet, where Lange plays acoustic guitar, frequently performs at various clubs and restaurants throughout Milwaukee and Waukesha County.

Jazz at Cutler Park is a free concert series that takes place every Wednesday evening from 7 to 9, at the Les Paul Performance Center at Cutler Park in downtown Waukesha, Wisconsin.
