The George Mason High School Jazz Band was busy last Tuesday spreading holiday cheer in Falls Church City. In the morning they performed for the seniors in the Senior Room at the Community Center. The group was very well received by the more than 50 seniors and staff who were there to hear them.

After returning to school for their afternoon classes, the band met up at The Italian Cafe. They played for the Falls Church and Annandale Lions Clubs who were hosting their annual holiday dinner.

Don Farrow, head of the FC Lions, introduced the group and acknowledged how many great musicians Mason music teacher Mary Jo West had sent to the Lions music competitions over the years.

The band’s music was enjoyed by the sixty plus Lions and guests, and the sing-along portion had the whole group caroling.
