High School students Philippa Innes and Emma Speck auditioned against students from across the world to be members of the 11 strong Honor Vocal Jazz Ensemble. After practicing the music at school, we traveled to Zurich for two and a half days of intensive rehearsals with the other students before the performance on Saturday October 5 with the Honor Jazz Band at Zurich International School. Philippa and Emma had the honor to be chosen to scat (an improvised solo) for the premier of a commissioned piece. Congratulations to Philippa and Emma!
