Rodriguez musicians win big in Reno – Daily Republic

By Amy Maginnis-Honey

The Rodriguez High School Jazz Band and Jazz Combo came home from Reno as winners.

The two groups participated in the 2014 Reno Jazz Festival at the University of Nevada, Reno. The competition draws schools from up and down the West Coast, including Seattle and Los Angeles. It features middle, high school and college bands.

The 52-year-old event is an important competition for students, said Scott Miller, who directs the band and combo.

“It’s one of the biggest next to the Monterey Jazz Festival,” Miller said. “It’s a big deal to get awards.”
