Harvard-Westlake Winter Jazz Concert Goes for Unconventional

Jazz photos taken and story by the Harvard-Westlake Chronicle staffer David Lim.

Jazz dominated the Harvard-Westlake campus this week. 

From David Lim:

"Call the concert Radio-jazz-head," Studio Jazz Band pianist Nick Healy '13 said of the Radiohead-infused Winter Jazz Concert. Two ensembles played covers of Radiohead songs "Paranoid Android" and "High and Dry" as their final numbers in Rugby Auditorium.   

All four groups in the jazz program took to the stage for "An Evening of Jazz" to perform jazz classics such as "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Sunny Side" and "The Blues Walk" in addition to the more unconventional jazz arrangements.

Rimvydas Paulikas, nicknamed "Rim," conducted the ensembles in the absence of Jazz Director Shawn Constantino's, who has been out of school since mid-October. Paulikas, a saxophonist who knew Constantino in graduate school, will direct the jazz program until Constantino's return.
