During the first week of October eleven talented ASIJ Jazz Band students traveled with Randy Wanless to the AMIS HS Jazz Festival, hosted this year by Zurich International School. The 28 members of the band, chosen through blind auditions, represented twelve schools.
Students were fortunate to have one day of sight seeing and chocolate tasting before moving to the homes of their host families for a week of intense rehearsing, culminating in a Friday evening Combo Concert and the Saturday evening Final Concert. (Randy Wanless, HS Music)
