There were 5 jazz ensembles at the Joy of Music this past year and on this edition of LJNE we will be hearing from one of them: Jazz Trane, directed by Tucker Antell.  These high school students have been studying jazz styles from standards to contemporary music.  They will be performing some of their own compositions.

  • Andrew Bedard, tenor sax – graduated from Oakmont High School – will be attending New England Conservatory and majoring in Jazz Studies
  • Andrew Wilcox, piano – graduated from Tahanto and will be attending the Hartt School of Music majoring in Jazz Studies
  • Christian Parent, guitar – a student at Burncoat High School will be a senior next year at Tantasqua Regional High School

We are also joined today by Richard Ardizzone, Associate Director of Joy of Music.
