It’s winter and that means our Jazz performers have been working hard making the rounds at festivals and competitions. At Folsom Jazz, one of the most competitive festivals in the state, Jazz Combo received a score of 930/1000, earning them a 3rd place trophy (out of 30 high school combos). Jazz Ensemble I received a score of 940/1000, earning them 1st place in their division (14 bands). Concord finished 8th overall at the LARGEST jazz competition in the state.
This Saturday, all of the Jazz ensembles finished up the season with wonderful performances at Campana Jazz Festival in Pleasanton. Several Concord students were singled out for soloist awards and educational scholarships, and Jazz Combo placed first with a rare score of 100! Congratulations to all of our Jazz performers!
