Coronado HS Jazz Students Compete in Fiesta Jazz Festival for the First Time
Coronado High School jazz band students performed for the first time at the Fiesta Jazz Festival in San Antonio the weekend of April 27-28. Coronado took a total of 42 students that made up two big bands and two combos, which were small jazz groups of various instrumentation. The Basie Big Band finished second in Class 4A, both combos earned awards, and the Ellington Big Band scored well in a very tough Class 5A lineup.
The Fiesta Jazz Festival is an annual event that offers an educational and music performance experience for over 500 middle school, high school, and college jazz student performers from across the state.
