Spring Jazz Program

The Santiago Spring Jazz Program went to print.  For the past school year I’ve had the honor and pleasure of designing (and photographing) all the programs for the award-winning Bands of Santiago Sharks.  This program you see here, is the last Jazz Concert of the season.  (Fall Jazz Program Cover) I set out to design […]
