Sunday afternoon I had the privilege and honor of watching "Madison Jazz" practice for their upcoming trip to China! The team is made up of 26 students/performers, including dancers, singers, rhythm section and horn players. I was blown away by the focus and talent that these high school and college students have!
Madison Jazz started in 2003 and is directed by Johnny Nash, who is also the director of the Discovery Middle school band. Nash and the Discovery Middle School band earned two national titles in 2010 and will be defending their titles later this year.
