  • Jazz band and combo earn gold at ISSMA Jazz Festival!

    Congratulations to our jazz band and jazz combo! Both groups received gold ratings March 2 at the ISSMA Jazz Festival at Whiteland Community High School. The smaller combo competed in Group II; the full band competed in Group III.

    Junior Nate Davis received an Outstanding Soloist award for his tenor saxophone performance with the jazz combo. Also, all soloists in the full jazz band received Outstanding Soloist awards: senior Andrew Roembke on trumpet (twice), Nate Davis (two more times), sophomore Carlie Sanders on trumpet, senior Jacob Chaves on trombone, and senior Nathan Williams on drums. Thank you, Gabriel Harley, for all your hard work with the students!
