There has been a lot going on; time to catch you all up.
Vocal Jazz recently returned from an excellent performance in Whistler at the Con Brio Festival. The ensemble received a Gold rating with a Superior score and were the only group at the festival to have a student rhythm section! Thanks again to Dr. Jean-Marie Kent and all the parent volunteers who made this trip possible.
Jumping to Jazz Band 2, they’re just back from competing in the AA High School category at the Reno Jazz Festival Both the big band and the combo took the top spots in their divisions, and the big band was featured in the evening showcase concert. Students, directors, and parents all put in a lot of hard work to make this event happen. Extra thanks to John Matsumoto for staying on top of all the trip logistics.
