Congratulations to the members of the Honors Jazz Band on their outstanding performance at Saturday's Chicago Area Jazz Festival at T-F South High School in Lansing, IL. They received a Division I rating and placed 3rd overall among the 12 bands competing (less than 3 points away from 1st!). Junior Armaan Yazdani was given the Best Section Player Award and senior John Catalano was given the Outstanding Soloist Award. Special thanks to freshmen Chris Mojek & Mike Piechota for stepping in at the last minute to cover the 2nd alto part. I am very proud of all of you!
