Back in January Central Bucks High School West put on a very special concert with the ‪Seaboard GRAND‬ as the centrepiece and Grammy winning artist Cory Henry as a special guest.

We are now delighted to share with you four performances from the event.

Back When” was composed by Cory and this amazing version features the CB West Alumni All Star Jazz Ensemble.

Look at the Bright Side” is another Cory Henry composition and this version again features the CB West Alumni All Star Jazz Ensemble.

An Evening Meditation” is an original composition by Matthew Samson (class of 2016). It uses an organ-like sound coupled with lightly distorted guitars to create a gentle atmospheric texture on the Seaboard to accompany the CB West Madrigal Choir.

Lingus” is a track by the Grammy winning group Snarky Puppy. In this version the CB West Alumni All Star Jazz Ensemble put their own spin on the work while still maintaining the musical intent of the original work. Complex melodies and harmonies lead to a spectacular solo feature for guest artist, Cory Henry.
