Professional Jazz Artists Rodney Whitaker, Victor Goines, Marcus Printup, Chris Crenshaw, Eric Reed, Carl Allen, Christopher McDole and Rockelle Fortin visited WOHS on Saturday, January 25 to put on a clinic with Jazz I and perform for the community. These world class musicians worked with Jazz I as a full group and then with individual sections for a two hour session discussing the nuances of jazz performance and improvisation. That evening they performed a stunning concert featuring the music of Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. The proceeds from the concert will go to benefit the West Ottawa High School Jazz Program.
