Jazz tribute for high school students


Some local high school students had a night out for a lesson in jazz music. The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre hosted a special tribute concert on Wednesday night.

Over 200 students from Hillgrove High School and other area high schools attended. Jared Sells, who attends Hillgrove, got a chance to sit in with the saxophonists of the Count Basie Orchestra.

"It was just really eye-opening like the amount of talent and skill these people play with," said Sells.

ArtsBridge and Jazz Roots: A Larry Rosen Jazz Series teamed up to make this event possible.
