The BVHS Jazz Combo hosted the Collegiate Peaks Honor Jazz Band, which consisted of jazz musicians from Buena Vista and surrounding communities.

Genice Matzke of Colorado Springs was the guest conductor.

The honor jazz group spent the day rehearsing, and presented a concert to show off their amazing music, said Marti Bott, instrumental music teacher at Buena Vista High School.

Several of the students had the opportunity to solo, demonstrating their jazz style.

The Jazz Messengers followed up the high school jazz band by playing a few jazz charts, and then both bands came together for a powerful rendition of “Caravan” that brought down the house, Bott said.
