Inspired by legends like Paquito D’Rivera and Arturo Sandoval, Rodrigo began his musical journey at a young age, honing his craft and gaining recognition for his strong and versatile sound, receiving praise from players such as Terell Stafford. As his career evolves, Rodrigo currently takes on many roles ranging from guest educator, featured performer, and bandleader as director of the Yardbird Suite Summer Big Band.

The Holy Trinity Jazz Band consists of 24 committed band students that attend Holy Trinity Catholic High School. The jazz band is under the direction of Morgan Richardson, who has been an educator with the Edmonton Catholic School Division since 2011 and has been teaching at Holy Trinity for the past 8 years. Consisting of students in grades 10, 11 and 12 this ensemble rehearses twice weekly. Every year the Trinity Jazz Band performs at various concerts and festivals, including Jazz Works festival, The ECSD celebration of the Arts and Art Walk, Holy Trinity Open House events as well as twice a year at Fine Arts evenings at Holy Trinity Catholic High School.
