Bandmaster Christopher Dorsey and his DCA Jazz Ensemble took a selfie during their spring concert on April 14. The band travels to New York City’s Lincoln Center next month to defend their first-place crown at the 24th Annual Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition & Festival, the nation’s premier jazz education event. They’ve won the national competition in 2011, 2012 and 2018.
