Champaign Central High School “Swing Central”; Roger Kaza, of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra


Champaign Central High School will presents its annual "Swing Central" event in Urbana on Saturday, with three of its own jazz bands and those of Edison Middle School and some special guests. On today's edition, I talk with Central's director of bands, John Currey, about the event and the school's jazz program. And we meet Roger Kaza, principal horn player of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, who presents a master class and recital in Charleston tonight. NOTE: The second audio clip contains part 2 of my interview with Roger Kaza, which did not air on the live show. Enjoy!
