The holiday concert featured nine Christmas pieces performed by Trinity’s Jazz Band along with some guest musicians from Richards High School. Dr. Ken Austin, professor of music at the College, and Charles Martin, band director at Richards, also joined their students in the concert.
Dana Segura ’16 of Chicago, Illinois, who played baritone saxophone at the concert, said music plays an important part in her Christmas experience.
“My favorite song would have to be ‘Hot Chocolate,’” Segura said. “There is nothing better than being by your friends and family you love with a nice cup of hot chocolate and some jazz music to bring in the season of Christmas.”
Many of the members of the Jazz Band also took part in the Christmastide concert the following day.
