The East Bay Jazz High School All Stars are appearing at the Bothwell Arts Center in Livermore for a single performance at 7 p.m. this Sunday (March 11). Tickets are $10.

More than 20 high school musicians are chosen for the All Stars from throughout the East Bay, selected through a competitive audition process each fall. They perform in two configurations: the Big Band and the smaller Jazz Combo.

This week's performance will include a short break between musical sets, and guests will be free to mingle or sit during the performance. Refreshments will be available for sale.

The Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center sponsors East Bay Jazz, now in its third year, which is the brainchild of trombonist, composer and teacher Spencer Sussman. The band gives students a chance to perform outside a school setting and fosters an appreciation for jazz in the community.

The teen musicians rehearse for several hours each week and perform throughout the Bay Area. For availability and booking, contact Kiran Guleria, LVPAC's education program manager at 583-2312 or

For tickets to this week's performance, call 373-6800 or go to Bothwell Arts Center is located at 2466 Eighth St. in Livermore.
