In 1973, Bill Hughes directed the first Current Jam pop variety show, performed by Edina High School's Concert Choir at the end of each school year.

The microphones are now cordless, she said, laughing with former classmate Margo Haeny Bredeson about how limiting the mics were during the 1973 Current Jam. At the time, the synthesizer was the newest thing and it was very cutting edge to Nike Vis Zoom Uptempo For Sale

Current Jam is "just plain fun" and the community continues to love the tradition, with some residents never missing it, Henderson said.

"It's a great way to end the year for seniors," he said.

A reception and tour is planned at the high school following the matinee on June 1. Hughes and Henderson, along with former Concert Choir director Robert Peterson, are expected to attend.

Some things have remained the same and some things have changed about Current Jam. During the first concert in 1973, wearing costumes wasn't really done. Spencer remembered she wore her prom dress, which was more "anti prom" than a prom dress. Boys wore jeans, as long as they didn't have holes in them.

The name "Current Jam" was suggested by Spencer. Hughes had tasked the Concert Choir of 1973 to come up with a name for the new concert. "Mustard Works," a twist on the choir's winter Master Works concert, was also one of the choices, Bredeson said.

Today, Henderson pushes a button on an iPod and the music fills the auditorium. When the shows first began, the students had to create their own arrangements and have an accompanist.

The show also features some behind the scenes alumni contributions. Grant Ashling of Crescent Moon Productions, EHS class of 1996, does the lighting design. Ben Franske of Franske Consulting, class of 2001, does the video production, and Andy Thompson, class of 1998, does the music arrangements.

He was so serious about music that it surprised the students when Nike Uptempo Gold he decided they would put on a fun show at the end of the year, said Laurie Wilson Spencer, who was a senior that year. The show really solidified the last month of high school for her and became the best part of the experience, she said.

Students today receive CDs and DVDs of their Current Jam performances. In contrast, vinyl records of the first year's concert were pressed, and Spencer still has hers.

Hughes began Current Jam to showcase the talents of students by performing popular music and allow the students to perform pop tunes, according to current Concert Choir director David Henderson.

40 years of Current Jam

Henderson began leading the show in 1999 after working with Peterson on Current Jam for many years. He has continued to keep the show current with solo groups and large group numbers with choreography.

A fundraising campaign, Keep Current Jam Current, is also being held in conjunction with the shows to raise $19,000 to purchase upgrades to the sound system.

Hughes directed Current Jam until Peterson took the helm in 1977. Under Peterson's direction, Current Jam grew into the EHS version of show choir. Technology, including video production and lighting, was also brought into the show, according to Henderson.
