Session Takes 2nd at Clackamas Vocal Jazz Festival

On Thursday, March 16, 2017, the Shasta Jazz Choir competed in the Clackamas Vocal Jazz Festival.  Following a minor delay encountered with a scenic detour, Session arrived at their destination…..with only 10 minutes until their scheduled performance time.  They quickly disembarked, changed clothes, lined up, and took the stage.  Despite the lack of time for vocal warm up, they provided a great performance, one which earned them a 2nd place trophy!  Their success in the face of adversity can only serve as momentum going forward to the next competition.
