4/13/13 Radio jazz takes tough set

 With the Reno Jazz Festival performance in just a couple of weeks, Radio Jazz is hard at work preparing great music. One of the toughest to prepare is the amazing, RIFFS FOR EVERYONE by Leonard Bernstein. This requires amazing agility and technical precision through relentless syncopation and bombastic meter changes. It will feature Ed Donofrio (junior) on clarinet and Evan Losoya (8th grade) on piano. 

The Reno Jazz festival is the largest of its kind in the world with hundreds of bands from high schools and universities from all over the world set to perform in front of professional adjudicators. It's great fun and an amazing educational experience. 

VCS is the smallest participating school in the festival. They will be performing 4 works including one of their original compositions.
