On March 24, the Big Band performed at the Greenwich Jazz Festival in Greenwich, Connecticut. This festival hosts bands from as far north as Canada and all over New England and requires them to perform the music of Duke Ellington for adjudication and individual awards. The judges this year were famed trumpet player Jon Faddis, legendary jazz musician and educator Ronald Carter, and Jim Gaiser, director of jazz at the New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida. West Babylon was awarded three best soloist awards to Aidan Carberry, Hannah Leddy, and Natalie McIntosh.
