OSA Jazz Combo plays at lunchtime
Congrats to our OSA Jazz Combo for the
wonderful Lunchtime Student Performances Series in partnership with the @oakcentral @oakworksweds!
The performance was this past Wednesday (1/17) from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm at Latham Square. This is a new series as part of the Oakland Works Wednesdays Initiative in collaboration with Oakland Central and @osaschool 🎷🎹🎺
The Jazz Combo consisting of students ranging from 9th grade to 11th grade is an eclectic group of talented young musicians. Together they create fun melodies and harmonies with a twist and contagious enthusiasm.
The @oakland_school_of_arts Instrumental Music Pathway is committed to helping each student reach their highest individual musical potential. The tools acquired in Instrumental Music are essential to careers such in solo, chamber/combo performance, Film Scoring, Audio and Video Production, Drama, Public Speaking etc.
We love this opportunity for our students to perform in the community!

Just a few of the many great events and classes happening in the Instrumental Music department!
