In this highly competitive festival, Jazz Combo B took second place. Kudos to Ben Fahari and William Brandt for winning outstanding soloists awards and to Joey Curreri, for winning a scholarship to the Stanford Summer Jazz Camp. We’re proud of you all!
In a national competition, Dario was selected to tour the US this winter and spring. Only one bass player was accepted. Bravo Dario!
A great time was had by all when the Academy’s amazing Mariachi band played for the Mayor’s annual Holiday party in December 2017.
