Trading Four — from left, Sashank Sridhar, tenor sax, senior at Wilson High; Cormick Costello, bass, sophomore at Gov. Mifflin High; Joel Evans, drummer, senior at Muhlenberg High; and Isaiah Nygard, piano, sophomore at Kutztown High – were honored Thursday night before the Chuck Loeb Memorial All-Star Jam concert at the DoubleTree by Hilton Reading during the Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest.

In addition to performing a set at the concert, Trading Four was presented with the $1,000 scholarship and framed prints commemorating last year’s Chuck Loeb tribute concert from John Ernesto, Berks Jazz Fest general manager; Keri Shultz, RMF president; and legendary jazz trumpeter Randy Brecker.
