Coronado put on yet another phenomenal performance done by Jazz Band 1 and Jazz Band 2 on March 14th in the Coronado auditorium.  They opened with “Rolling With the Punches” and continued their musical talent with the Jazz songs “Pick Yourself Up”, “Love is Here to Stay”, and “Coming Home Baby”. Freshman and Jazz Band 1 trumpet player Sidney Gaylord recalls he had a solo in “Rolling With the Punches.” “The only thing I was focusing on was the blues scale, and how fast and how hard my heart was beating.” Sidney said on the solo.

Copies of the concert were available outside the auditorium following the performance. Friends and family of the band members came out to hear some great jazz music performed by Coronado’s musically gifted students.
