Made of up 24 students from freshmen to seniors, the ensemble rehearsed after school since December and has performed several times in February, March and April. Performances were as close as Cocalico High School, and as far away as Chichester High School in Delaware County.

On April 30, at 7:30 p.m., the Warwick High School Jazz Ensemble will perform their entire repertoire in a joint concert with “The Moonlighters” in the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center. The evening will end with a combined piece with both bands performing back and forth with one another and trading solos in the groups.

The public is invited and admission is free. To learn more, call 626-3700.
