On January 31, 2015 Berklee College of Music will host its 47th Annual High School Jazz Festival—the largest of it’s kind in the United States. The Waynflete Upper School Jazz Band and Combo will be participating in the event! Students will leave Waynflete Friday, January 30, and return on Sunday. Both groups will present tunes of varying styles including fast swing, ballad and Latin funk. The Berklee festival is one of the groups favorite events!
