The Harborfields High School Jazz Band travelled to Centereach to take part in SCMEA’s Day of Jazz on Feb. 3. The band performed for and received feedback from renowned trumpeter Tony Kadleck, took part in a play-a-long workshop with a professional big band, and participated in an improvisation clinic. It was a positive educational experience for all, and each performance aspect of the band’s day was met with good advice and high praise from the adjudicator and clinicians.

“When it comes to learning about jazz, there are great benefits in having an opportunity to work directly with real-deal practitioners of the art form,” noted Jazz Band Director Dan Bilawsky. “That was made perfectly clear through our experiences at SCMEA’s Day of Jazz.”
