Way to go, Roosevelt! Director Scott Brown said it best: “Congrats to our Roosevelt Jazz Band students for being accepted by blind audition as Essentially Ellington Finalists for 2022! Congrats also to Bothell and Mt. Si, whose jazz bands were the other two chosen from our region.” A total of 15 bands have been invited to participate in the 27th annual Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition & Festival to be held May 5-7 at Lincoln Center in NYC. See the full list of finalists here: https://academy.jazz.org/ee/ Congratulations to all involved!
