Jazz in the Meadows RECAP

Thank you to all that made the trip to Rolling Meadows H.S. this past Saturday for the Jazz in the Meadows Festival. Over 60 schools from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, and Minnesota participated in this annual event.

We had two ensembles performing, Jazz Band and Honors Jazz Band. Jazz Band received a III rating with Outstanding Musician awards going to Seniors Pat O'Hara & John Catalano, Junior Jesse Flores, and Sophomores Ed Stypka and Tim Puczkowskyj. Honors Jazz Band received a II rating with Senior Austin O'Brien receiving an Outstanding Musician award. Both bands were adjudicated by some of the top jazz artists & educators in the Midwest and received helpful comments that will help us to improve.

Congratulations to the members of both bands!
