South Side Bee Branch hosted a regional jazz clinic and concert this past Saturday. Students from Conway, Greenbrier, Vilonia, Russellville, Dardanelle, Heber Springs, and Dover were on hand to play in the all Region IX jazz bands. Students tried out for a slot in November, and those who made the cut came to Friday evening and Saturday morning for practice, followed by a Saturday afternoon performance. Featured were guest directors from Louisiana, Arizona and Arkansas.
