Roosevelt Jazz Band at the Umbria Jazz Festival

Seattle’s Roosevelt High School Jazz Band added to its illustrious history last summer with a tour of jazz festivals in France, Switzerland and Italy. The group was honored to perform at two of the most prestigious jazz festivals in the world, Montreux and Umbria. Outdoor stages in beautiful surroundings with hundreds of spectators at each performance made for a wonderful tour. Capping off the tour in Perugia at the Umbria Jazz Festival was a highlight of the trip for many of the students.
