Saturday, Nov 4 IAJ students will be performing at Viejas before the Opening of Southern California’s Largest Outdoor Ice Skating Rink.
Every winter, the Viejas Outlet Center transforms one section of green lawn into a winter wonderland that includes an outdoor ice rink, grounds decked out with holiday lights, entertainment, and a seasonal water show in their food court. Our students will perform jazz standards from 3:00pm-5:00pm in the middle of the Outlet Center, and afterwards, under the glow of holiday lights, guests and visitors can glide around the rink or enjoy seasonal goodies from 5pm-10pm. The Casino and Resort is owned by the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians and its outlet center features a food court, bowling alley, spa, and many popular brand name stores for apparel, accessories, footwear, housewares, and more. The Kumeyaay tribe actively supports communities and organizations throughout San Diego, and we are deeply grateful they are providing a welcoming place for our students to perform, and for this exciting opportunity to partner with them to continue our quest to bring ensemble jazz to new audiences.
