SCN Jazz Workshop @Essentially Ellington
On Friday Mrs. Zupec and I were fortunate to witness a polished and exciting performance by the SCN Jazz Workshop at the Essentially Ellington festival.
With jazz great Wynton Marsalis just a few feet away making written comments, the Workshop was calm and professional as they presented their performance completely on their own after a short introduction by Mr. Wojciechowski and Mr. Stombres.
Everyone in the SCN community should be very proud of these students for their preparation, conduct, and musicianship.
UPDATE: Special Congratulations to Collin Didier who was recognized for his outstanding trumpet work! Read the press release here: http://www.jalc.org/about/news/2007/pdf/2011-05-14_Essentially_Ellington_Winners%20FINAL.pdf
