Students at the high school and Dodd took the stage to showcase their extraordinary musical talents in the ninth annual Night of Jazz.

With Adam Rubin and Michael LaSorsa directing the middle- and high-school musicians, respectively, the evening was filled with song, dance and a celebration of American history, people and places. Highlights included the student ensemble Brass Bois, led by high school senior Myles Carter, marching through the audience during a spirited performance of a Dixieland hit, in addition to the finale featuring a combined ensemble of seventh- through 12th-graders performing together and showcasing soloists’ improvisation skills.

The event was a harmonious testament to the remarkable talents of students and the high level of jazz instruction in the district.
