Delphian Jazz Choir takes First at Pleasant Hill Jazz Festival

Pleasant Hill is the largest school jazz festival in the state of Oregon, with about thirty High Schools and ten Middle Schools sending jazz bands and choirs to participate.  Delphian performs in the highly competitive Close-Proximity Microphone Division (where each singer has his own microphone).  Delphian was in the smaller school division that includes schools who have up to 800 students.  

 In the preliminary round the choir performed 3 songs.  “Time’s a’ Wastin'” is a blues piece that has solos from vocalists, Guy Eskinazi and Kristel Ehrlich.  Then they performed “Here’s That Rainy Day” a poignant ballad featuring Jeff Spick and Kristel.  They closed with the exciting Brazilian tune “Desafinado”.  It featured vocal solos by Savana St. Aubin, JJ Pinkus, and Guy Eskinazi and a piano solo from Elizabeth Strickland.  They did very well.
