St. John’s Jazz combo played the reception for the NCEA Seton Awards held at the Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor.
The Jazz Combo, directed by Mr. Hammann, is comprised of some of the top musicians and improvisors in the school’s jazz program. At this event, four students, accompanied by Mr. Hammann on bass, entertained guests as they enjoyed the reception prior to dinner and the awards ceremony. The combo played many jazz standards including “Mr. P.C.,” “Blues by Five,” and, as the crowd walked into dinner, “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
