RHS Jazz Wins at Reno and Bellevue

35th Annual Bellevue Jazz Festival

We had a great time at this annual festival hosted by Bellevue High School.  Jazz Bands III and IV came in 1st and 2nd  in their division, and Jazz Band II took 2nd place in the 3A division.  To play well and be recognized is a great thing and the result of a lot of hard work.   Congratulations!

Reno Jazz Festival

Jazz Band I performed with joy and skill at the Reno Jazz Festival. A fantastic clinic with Clay Jenkins after the performance was a bonus. We were delighted to make the finals, and to win first place in the High School AAA division. Our Combos took third and fourth places. Congratulations Scott Brown and Jazz Band I. Well earned.
