North Providence hosted its first ever village festival this weekend, drawing enormous crowds. There were vendors selling food, toys, jewelry, and a lot more. Among the fun-filled festivities, the NPHS Jazz band took the spotlight on Saturday. The band featured Jeremy Giammarco, Kyle Giammarco, Owen Landry, Kai Capitumini, and Thomas Niosi on their saxophones. Nicolas Upegui and Samuel Loranger showcased their skills on the trumpet and keyboard respectively. To top this off, band director, Mr. Morrison played the drums. As the band flaunted its skills, the eager crowds listened to tunes from “Sing, Sing, Sing”, and the “Night Train.”

The performance continued for 90 minutes in front of the Town Hall, keeping the masses very entertained.

On being asked about his thoughts on the evening, Mr. Morrison said, “We are extremely thankful for having the means and ability to participate in the town’s festival. We hope to engage in more such events in the future.”

He makes it clear that he is extremely proud of his students.

He even claims that “the band students are the hardest working students in school”.

This evening stands as testimony to his claim.
