Combo students were once again able to open for the Darren Sterud Jazz Orchestra. The DSO has been doing their Nutcracker performances for the past 14 years. We have been really fortunate to be involved as an opening act the past three years. This has provided a ton of experience for our students.
This year a smaller venue meant that we sent out a combo instead of the full band. The engagement however was for two nights affording multiple horn lines the opportunity to do some small group work.
