CHS Jazz Bands @ Westlake Jazz Festival on May 13th, 2017
Congratulations to the CHS Jazz bands on their performances at the Westlake Jazz Festival, competing with over 70 high school and middle school bands from the region. The Jazz A and B band both received excellent ratings. All three of the Jazz Combos received superior ratings for their performances, with Combos II and III earning 1st and 2nd place in the Intermediate Combo division, and Combo I placing 5th in the Advanced category (off from 3rd place by only 2 points!). The following students received Outstanding Musician/Soloist awards: Omer Fedi (1 for combo, 1 for big band), Ian Karnick (1 for combo, 1 for big band), Kian Ravaei, Joshua Franklin.
Please congratulate our jazz students from the Jazz A and B bands and the Combos on their successes. If you’d like to hear them play in person, come out to The Six in Calabasas (across from the Cantina) on Sunday evening, June 4th from 6-10pm. You can also hear the Jazz A Band at Bogie’s in Westlake on Tuesday May 30th at 7pm, opening for the Boyd Cannon Big Band.
