The 10th anniversary of the Jazz Education Network (JEN) was held at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, NV last weekend (Jan 9-13). The event was attended by the DP advanced jazz band and combo; the combo also played with the DP jazz choir. Each band performed a thirty-minute set and received valuable feedback by clinicians. The students attended panel discussions and clinics throughout the day, and were enthralled by world-class jazz musicians at the nightly concerts.
