The jazz band took a break from playing concertos and symphonies with the concert band to play some Latino swing at the year-end band concert on May 15.

While playing “El Burrito Picante and the Chamber of Doom”, sophomore Scott Yantis, center, performed a solo and is joined by freshman Rachel Guthrie and junior Michael Prentice.

“Mr. [Chris] Rice gave us a nice change and gave all the people who weren’t doing solos percussion instruments which we played during the solos,” Yantis said. “We enjoyed playing Latin rather than the regular swing and ballads.”

Band director Rice was pleased with the performances.

“The great thing about the concert was that we had soloists represented from 5th grade all the way to 12th grade,” Rice said.
