The 2019-2020 Concert Jazz Band was selected as a Large Ensemble Winner for Downbeat’s student music awards. This is a HUGE honor!! The last time The Hall Jazz Program won a downbeat award for large ensemble/big band was 1996 and 2004. The audio submissions sent for consideration were two of the '19-'20 Essential Ellington submissions (Harlem Airshaft and Isfahan) and Feb '20 video camera audio of the National Jazz Festival performance of Vital Frequencies. Congrats to everyone!
New photos are forthcoming soon.
