NDP students play solid jazz as part of the school's Colin House Concert Series.

Notre Dame Prep students, from left, John Milback NDP'23, Josh Reid NDP'22 and George Moussa NDP'24 spent a recent afternoon performing six classic jazz standards for a small group of friends and school staff members gathered in the main room of NDPMA's Fr. Colin House.

The students' performance was yet another edition of the Notre Dame recorded "Colin House Concerts" in which members of the Notre Dame community are invited to sing and play in a small, informal setting at the school. The jazz trio, who said they've been playing together now and then for a while, performed covers of popular jazz tunes, including those written by Duke Ellington, Antônio Carlos Jobim and Paul Desmond (Dave Brubeck Quartet).

A video recording of their performance is available below.
