On Saturday, May 7, the Roosevelt Jazz Bands 2 and 3, both under the direction of Michael Van Bebber, competed in the Bellevue High School Jazz Festival in the Band 2/3 division. They both made it to the division finals; JB3 tied with Garfield 2 for a third place finish, and JB2 took top honors in their division.
Congratulations to the students and Mr. Van Bebber on great performances. The students had a full day of playing with each other, hearing from clinicians, and being cheered on by their peers at the other schools. So grateful to be finally playing in front of a live audience!
