The Hargest jazz group Off the Record attended the annual Youth Jazz Festival in Wellington from August 21-24.

Band members, Quinton Blaas, Josiah Brown, Rebekah Elder, Jonty Heydenrich, Anna Redmond, Susana Sotutu, David Stupples, Claire Yorkstone and Michael Zhang, were fortunate enough to take part in competitions and workshops led by world renowned musicians. The band received positive comments from the adjudicators for their strong presentation and Rebekah Elder gained an Award of Commendation for her flute playing.

All band members were inspired by their experiences at the festival and are already planning for next year!

Special thanks goes to Mr John McClelland for the countless hours he has put into encouraging and leading the jazz band.
