Performance: Jazz Residency – April 14, 2015

On Tuesday, April 14, 2015, the Prairie Ridge, Northview, and Centennial Jazz Bands hosted Dr. Dave Camwell of Simpson College as their Artist in Residence. A big thank you to Yamaha and the anonymous family that helped to make this two-day residency possible. Students in 7-12th grade jazz bands worked with Dr. Camwell in rehearsals and master classes over the two days leading up to the concert. They heard about articulation, style, tradition, saxophone embouchure and setup, improvisation, as well as opportunities for performance in the summer and after high school.
