Swingin' jazz sounds good


It's been a pretty busy couple of weeks for Farmington High School jazz band students. It's not easy winning all the awards they have recently, but someone has to do it.

The good news is, the Farmington community will reap the benefits from the recent whirlwind excursions of the FHS jazz ensembles at a free concert Monday night.
