Just a quick update to let you all know how excited we are to welcome Hannah Mowry as Roosevelt High School’s new Band Director. She comes to us most recently from Mt. Si High School where she served as the Assistant Band Director. Here’s a short bio below, and we encourage you to check back for updates later this summer!

Hannah has served as a featured trumpet soloist with the CWU Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble and was the principal chair for the Symphony Orchestra. In addition to her playing at CWU, she has performed in small groups of all genres around the state of Washington. She has recorded with Alec Shaw, a Seattle-based artist on his 2017 album “Uh Oh and the Oh Wells,” available on iTunes and Spotify.
