St. Dominic High School has notable jazz musicians

St. Dominic High School's jazz ensemble musician Wyatt Forhan, right, is among 21 of the top high school jazz musicians in the country to be chosen for an all-star touring jazz orchestra this summer, The Next Generation Jazz Orchestra. Forhan waited with St. Dominic senior Elaina Heavner.

Larry Johnson closed one of the last practices of the St. Dominic High School jazz band's school year by reminding the students that they have more talent than they realize and can "take it to the next level."

He's given this advice before, because he's witnessed their talent and has had a hand in developing it.

Take, for example, junior Wyatt Forhan, who plays drums in the jazz band but also plays bass trombone, trombone, piano, bass guitar and tuba.
