The Morris Area High School Jazz ensembles (Jazz I, II, and III) attended the Jazz Fest clinic on Friday, April 4 as a part of the 36th annual Jazz Fest that happened this past weekend.

The ensembles each performed three pieces for guest artist Kevin Harris and regional clinician JT Bates. After performing, each group recieved a constructive and hands on critque from Harris and Bates to help them improve for their next concert.

The next Morris Area jazz concert is scheduled for Monday, May 5 in the concert hall.

Pictured are the Jazz I performing, Max Jerke doing a solo during the Jazz I performance, and Jazz II in the middle of its critique by Kevin Harris.
