On December 2nd,  CLC’s primary jazz band had the opportunity to partake in this year’s Fox Valley Jazz Festival, hosted at Crystal Lake South High School. Arriving just after 8:30am, the Tigers participated in clinics run by professional jazz musicians. CLC’s set included the following songs: Bossa Montreux, String of Pearls, and One O’Clock Jump. Some notable soloists include Ben Agress, Brooke Boxrud, Ryan Rosenberger, and Alex Ryan. During the clinics, the instructors critically analyzed the set and offered their opinions. After the clinics were over, the band made their way to the auditorium to watch Elmhurst College’s Jazz band perform a full set. From fusion jazz to Count Basie tunes, the band was a great inspiration for our Tigers’ upcoming season.

Don’t miss the upcoming jazz concert on Tuesday, December 15th at 7pm. The concert will take place in the Listening Room at Lakeside Center. This concert will feature Jazz Band 1, Jazz Band 2, and our two Jazz Combos!
