The 2016 Annual Jazz Dinner Dance, featuring the talents of the Jazz Bands of Ludlowe and Warde High Schools, was held Friday, May 13, 2016 at the Inn at Longshore. The music was fantastic and the dancing was contagious. The air was filled with merriment as parents, friends, and music lovers from around town came to listen to fabulous big band and jazz music as well as popular charts such as Uptown Funk, and Happy, along with some outstanding vocals. The MPA’s silent auction fundraiser was well supported and the MPA is able to fund their many philanthropic programs as a result.
