Student-musicians collaborated with highly respected educators and performers to produce a jazz concert for the community on Feb. 23.

The well-attended, one-of-a-kind concert featured Hampton Bays Middle and High School instrumental and vocal jazz musicians performing alongside baritone saxophonist Lauren Sevian and Stephen Gleason, professor and director of vocal jazz at Five Towns College. Also performing was an 18-member jazz ensemble of professional musicians and music educators from around Long Island.

Prior to the concert, the student-musicians participated in a day of workshops with Sevian and Gleason to perfect their performances.
