The CHS Jazz Ensemble held its annual winter coffeehouse Dec. 11.

The band room was transformed, with lights strung all over the room and winter related decorations such as snowflakes hung from the walls and on the tables. Admission and food were free, and all food was provided by parents and volunteers. The show had a casual atmosphere and the audience was encouraged to get up and dance.

“My favorite song would have to be ‘Orange Sherbet’ because it was an uplifting song with a great swing beat, but the best song we played this year was a song titled ‘Nutville,’” junior percussionist Evan Lutterman said. “I would have to say that this year’s coffee house was a great one. We put tremendous effort into learning the songs.”
