Connors, Clark and Comer awarded for ‘outstanding’ jazz solos

The Wilton High School Jazz ensemble won the Darien High School Invitational Jazz Jamboree Festival on March 4, and three of its Jazz I band members were recognized for their solo performances — seniors Elliott Connors, Tristan Clark and Will Comer.

Jazz bands from eight area high schools performed at the jazz festival and each received clinics with professional jazz musicians. Wilton Jazz I was the only band to receive three Outstanding Soloist awards.
