Jazz Band Awarded Gold

The OHS Jazz Band, once again gave impressive performances at the Auckland Jazz Competition for Secondary Schools and were awarded Gold for their efforts.

They performed, Autumn Leaves by Johnny Mercer, Work Song by Nat Adderley, At Last by Etta James and Watermelon Man by Herbie Hancock. The band was complimented for bringing different and interesting music to the competition and for being able to perform so well for the audience, because they knew their pieces, rather than having to rely on reading sheet music. It is exciting to see the young and emerging talent that we have in the band.

Congratulations, Osamu Toafa 13Ll on Piano, Janie Pulu 13Lu on Vocals, Desiree Scanlan 11Th on Vocals, Kyle Moodley 12 Ed on Bass, Josiah Faaaoga 12By on Drums, Nathan Chitty 13Sr on Guitar and Jayden Johnson 10Db also on Guitar. Thank you to the talented HOD of Performing Arts Mr Jonny White for his work with the band.
