Attention Taft High Music Alumni
As I reported in a post titled "The Music Man", our high school music director from Fall 1964 to Summer 1995, Ken Kamp, succumbed to cancer and passed away last October.
Yesterday I learned that on March 5th, 2007 from 8PM to 10PM, a tribute concert will take place at Taft High School. Short notice, but if you're a Taft music alumnus, you won't want to miss it.
The "First Annual Ken Kamp Tribute Concert" will feature an 18 piece band playing Ken's most recent charts/arrangements! It should be a wonderful event where alumni can share their stories of the good old days and enjoy some of Ken's music. Who knows who you might see there?
The school's website is here: Taft High School
Steve Burch - Steve is the present band and orchestra teacher at Taft and has been there since Ken retired in 1995. He is also a composer/arranger, performer and director of the Moorpark College Jazz Ensemble and Community Orchestra.
