Wenatchee Jazz Workshop Connects Student, Professional Music Lovers

For nearly 20 years, the Wenatchee Jazz Workshop has brought professional jazz artists to work with local student musicians.

It pairs professional jazz musicians/instructors with jazz band students from six local middle and high schools for a week. At the end of the week are two public concerts called “Jazznights” – one by the pros Thursday and one featuring the students from the six schools with the pros this Friday.

KOHO’s Dan Langager sits down with two Wenatchee High School seniors – bass trombonist Olivia Lancaster and trumpeter Sammy Arredondo – to talk about working with the professionals and the concert on Friday.
