LHS choirs celebrate jazz

The LHS choirs are making the best of things this year, even with the cancellation of the University of Idaho’s Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in February.
As an alternative to the annual festival in Moscow, the LHS choirs and bands held their own kind of festival at school in Lewiston.
“Having this smaller, LHS-only jazz festival was a fun but bittersweet experience,” said Justin Alder, who sings with Gold Voices. “The choirs were pretty sad that we couldn’t travel to Moscow and compete with schools from all around. But we still got to support each other, see our friends sing.”
