Congratulations to the Idyllwild Arts Academy Jazz Combo on their first place win at the Reno Jazz Festival.  Held April 26-28, combo members Mary Kate Duffy (bass), Lake Jiroudek (guitar), Luca Jacaruso (piano), and Max Kazakov (percussion) did a tremendous job taking a first place in the AAAA High School Combo division.

This is the third first place for the combo, who won the top award two years in a row at the Berklee Jazz Festival followed by last week’s win at Reno. Marshall Hawkins praised the group, saying, “This is a milestone for the combo. Not only did they win three first places, they did it in the highest division possible for their age group. They owe it all to their instructor, Paul Carman who has mentored them and facilitated the trips to these competitions for both years.” Again, congratulations!
