14 students appear on a stage, each playing a musical instrument. 10 students are seated, playing brass or reed instruments; 3 stand in back, playing percussion, and one is seated at a piano.

On Thursday, 3/2, the QNQ Jazz Ensemble attended the MAJE (Massachusetts Association for Jazz Educators)-sponsored jazz competition at Canton High School. This is only the second time that this group has attended a competition of this caliber, and we want to congratulate them on scoring a silver medal!

Outstanding musicianship awards were given to students Ethan Earnest (QHS '23) on trumpet, Kenneth Reale (QHS '23) on Bari Saxophone, and Jesse Bollinger (QHW '23) on guitar. We want to congratulate the entire QNQ ensemble and wish them luck next week on their competition at Reading High School on Thursday, 3/9.

Here's a quick clip of their performance of "Symphony in Riffs":
