First Gig of the Year!

Students from Mr. Eric Vincent’s Jazz Improv class had their first “gig” of the year on Monday, October 2 at the Wachusett Country Club in West Boylston. They performed an hour of jazz music at the St. Rose of Lima charity golf tournament. The annual event raises money for youth services within the local community, and it provides an opportunity for our music students to put what they do in the classroom to use in a real world setting. IMG_3969

Students involved were:

Ethan Cardillo, gr 10, guitar

Mateo Oyola, gr 10, bari sax

Justin Moyer, gr 11, trumpet
