This year’s Evening of Jazz represented a first for Harker’s conservatory. It was the first concert to feature musicians from both the lower and upper school jazz bands. Director Chris Florio said he was “really passionate about [the school’s] instrumental program being strongly K-12.” He called the pairing of the bands “the newest example of how we’re succeeding with that goal.” The night got off to a rousing start with the lower school band performing first. Next up was the upper school band, featuring soloists Ben Tien, Dwight Payne, Frankie Nagle and Nikunj Donde. The show ended with an encore of “Brick House,” with solos from graduating seniors Aadithya Prakash, Sammi Werthen and Won Hee Lee.
