On February 27th the Marine Corps jazz band performed their tunes in front of OHS Students during a double 5th hour. The auditorium filled with students and faculty members eager to hear the beautiful sounds of music. The group of six had been touring around the country even since the beginning of February. This band has been traveling all over the country to places like Ohio, Wisconsin, and even Kentucky. They will be performing a free performance for the community February 27th at 7:30pm. The group of members in the Corps are not only known as musicianists but also actively serve the country. They want people to be aware that apart from performing great jazz tunes the group fully went through marine bootcamp and are prepared to serve their country whenever and wherever.
