     Taft’s Jazz band had performed an Autumn and Halloween themed concert to honor the start of the season. All performers played while in costume to celebrate the special occasion.

    “That night we played Autumn Leaves by Joseph Kosma, 702 Shuffle by Bret Zvaceki, Count Bubba by Gordon Goodwin, Shiny Stockings by Frank Foster, and our last piece was A Little Blues Please By Sammy Nestico,” said Kevin Harriman, director of the jazz band.

   Rehearsing since the start of the school year the band has worked each day at the five compositions in order to perform them on that night of October 30th.

    “It is really fun, I really enjoy playing trumpet. Performing solos is also really exciting to do and not an opportunity I have been able to do in the other concert classes,” said Teddy Ludwig, a trumpet player in the band.

    With the Autumn concert now completed the Jazz Band will now work on their new show music for their Winter concert, planned for December. For their concert the band plans to perform holiday and winter themed compositions to play on the stage.
