Cardinal jazz bands take concert on the road

The Luverne Public Schools Instrumental Music Department conducted its 2015 Spring Jazz Concert Tuesday, April 21, at the American Reformed Church in Luverne.

According to director Richard Owen, the groups first performed at the church last year and returned because of the facility’s excellent acoustics for audience members to better hear the small group of performers.

Students performed seven numbers and featured middle school soloist Jonah Louwagie on trumpet and high school students Tatiana Gust (saxophone), Ryleigh Beers (saxophone), Madi Schandelmeier (trumpet) and Cole Bosch (percussion).
