All students must print and turn in the Jazz Band Contract for placement into either band.
Before posting results, I’d like to remind those who do not make Jazz Band A to come out to Jazz Band B. I would love to have two full jazz bands (and that is how we get better for next year’s auditions!). Rehearsal start Monday, November 20th.
The following people were not placed in Jazz Band A, but are invited to “shadow” (sit in on rehearsals when they can, but not perform at shows) so long as the commit to Jazz Band B:
Kendra Allen (guitar or trumpet)
And here’s the 2017 NHS Jazz Band A (henceforth known as the Charger Big Band):
Alto 1: Haydn Spurrell
Alto 2: Ethan Cove
Tenor 1: Abby Johnson
Tenor 2: Emma Blythe
Bari: Alison West
Trumpet 1: Christopher Keesor
Trumpet 2: Brandon Guzman
Trumpet 3: Gianluca Iacono
Trumpet 4: Tyler Moore
Trombones (in no particular order 1-3): Andrew Mattson, Caitlyn Nelson, Grant Sowards
Bass Trombone: Cole O’Malley
Guitar: Noah Brackett
Bass: John Thu
Piano: Christopher Esther
Set: Zach Brackett, Randall Dowdy
Vibes: Jacob White
Charger Big Band will have rehearsals three days this week – Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday!
Congrats to all who made it. And again – if you didn’t make it, please come out to Jazz Band B rehearsals and make that commitment. You’ll get much better with the experience and get to play cool music!
