Emerson J. Dillon Middle School jazz band members perform in concert May 10.

Phoenix student jazz musicians perform concert

Phoenix student jazz musicians recently showcased their talents during a year-end concert at Emerson J. Dillon Middle School.

Under the direction of David Frateschi, the middle school jazz band took the stage to begin the evening of entertainment. Songs such as “Billie Jean” and “We are Family” brought the audience to its feet, as a disco ball hung overhead and added to the upbeat atmosphere.

Following their younger counterparts’ lead, the high school jazz band continued with the high-tempo performance. Director Liza Grethel introduced the first song, “Fool Me Once,” followed by “It’s a Matter of Time,” “Orange Colored Sky,” “Blues for a New Day” and “Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive.”
