Chiefs Jazz It Up

Palm Beach State College hosted the Jazz Festival this year where the Santaluces Jazz Band performed amongst professionals.

With a relatively small audience of approximately 75 people, the group performed three pieces: John Lewis’ “Afternoon in Paris,” written in the 1950’s, “One Note Samba,” and Gordon Goodwin’s “Work in Progress.”

“The experience was really great; I enjoyed having the opportunity to play with so many college jazz bands,” said senior Jennifer De La Rosa, a flute player in the Santaluces Jazz Band. “It inspired me to be a more active member of the band in class, and take more soloing opportunities.”

The festival also featured performances by Palm Beach Atlantic Jazz Band, and ¬†Palm Beach State’s Jazz Band along with others.
