The jazz band will perform a River Grace original at Friday’s concert.

Jazz band is currently working on their pieces for their spring concert that will be held Friday in the Satellite High School auditorium at 6:30 p.m.

“Not only are we working on the music for the spring concert, but we are learning to further blend our sound and how to make a true improv solo,” senior alto sax player Joel Souchek said. “It’s pretty fun and everyone is definitely working hard to make good music for the concert.” 

The pieces the group will be performing include “Prime Suspect,” “Steam Whistle,” “Prayer Meetin’,”  and “Take the ‘A’ Train.” In addition, the combo will perform”In Da Houze,” composed by senior River Grace.

The concert marks one the last performances for the combo due to upcoming graduation.

“I think we’re all a little sad about it,” Souchek said. “Most of us have committed most of our high school to the jazz band and its activities.” 

Senior bass player Jacob Booe concurred.

“It’s the end of a great journey with some of my best friends,” he said. “But I enjoyed it.”
