School Shows

Hangin’ with the Giants

by JazzReach

Grades K-4

This enthusiastic multi-media program introduces students to the rich history of jazz and to the names, faces, and music of some of its many masters such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Dizzy Gillespie. Your students will love when the jazz greats come to life before their eyes as cartoon characters on an energetic talk show, with a live band on stage to play their greatest tunes! The fun, highly engaging presentation also features a charismatic host.

“It was a lively and interactive show that brought jazz history to the students in a fun and creative way.”

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden with our Art Talks program!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Geometry in Art is running now through August 2025. This exhibition celebrates the intersection of geometry and artistic expression through the works of nine extraordinary artists, each presenting a unique perspective and aesthetic through their exploration of form, line, and negative space.

Sign up for a self-guided tour right on your School Show application or email us.
