Marvelous, soul-moving, spirited, well-blended, a distinct challenge to some professional groups — it is difficult to describe the combined talents of the Rutland High School Jazz Band members and their teacher, Mr. Brent Barnett.
Their concert at the Rutland County Club on Thursday, April 25, was truly remarkable. If performed for earning money for concert travel expenses, they deserve to have well-earned experiences ahead of them.
For those people who have not yet heard the RHS Jazz Band, seize the opportunity whenever available and you will want to hear their talents again and again.
Smoothly performing a 50% greater number of pieces than other such groups, the range of music texture, harmony and melodiousness would likely double that number if compared to any challengers to-be.
