Our Chisnallwood Jazz Combo were lucky this week to perform at ARA as part of the JazzQuest Combo Competition. All other 15 bands were from high schools so we were especially fortunate to be able to take part. 

Following their  20 minute performance they were lucky to work with top jazz musician ARA tutors Gwyn Reynolds (sax), Scott Taitoko (trombone), Darren Pickering (piano), Luke Smillie (drums) , Michael Story(bass) and Cameron Pearce (trumpet).

The results are announced at a special concert on Friday night where each of the 16 combos get to perform one of their pieces at “The Piano”!
