Arlington Jazz Band Performs at Flynn Jazz Festival
Seventeen Arlington students recently participated in the 23rd annual Vermont Association for Jazz ‘Education Jazz Festival’ at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington, Vt. Arlington was one of 21 high school jazz bands from Vermont to participate.
During the festival, each jazz band had a 40-minute block in which they performed, and then received a critique of their work by the judges. Following the festival, a digital recording of the performance and a written critique are sent to the band’s director. The Arlington Jazz Band performers are all musical students of Instrumental Music Teacher and Band Director, Phelan Gallagher.
