Performances from the band and solos from its members will fill the evening with rhythm and joy.

On Wednesday, Nov. 9, the WRA Jazz band will be holding its fall performance at Brothers Lounge in Lakewood. They have worked hard in rehearsal all semester. They will be performing tunes from the “Big Band” era, such as "Take the A Train" by Duke Ellington and "Stompin' at the Savoy," as recorded by Benny Goodman. The band will also perform some small combo pieces featuring vocal talent from Alex Newman ’24 and Kaitlyn Golden ’23, along with others by Aaron Chen ’23 and Tessa Lavi ’26. Alex Wu ’23 will also perform on his trumpet in a combination piece with the rhythm section and Fine & Performing Arts Department faculty member Mr. Ed Leonard. Brothers Lounge is a jazz club in Lakewood, Ohio, and features new talent weekly in the Cleveland area. For more information, please contact Ed Leonard: leonarde@wra.net.
