All-Region Jazz Competition

All-Region Jazz Competition
Posted on 11/15/2017
CHS had a strong start this year with our HS Jazz Band. On Saturday, 9/30, CHS took 15 jazz students to the All-Region Jazz Competition held at St. Mark's. We had 5 students make the band (1 band, 20 spots available): Deepali Advani, 2nd trombone; Sara Hernandez, 2nd alto saxophone; Zach Flores, 3rd trumpet; Collin Otwell, 4th trumpet; and Savanah Roane, 5th trumpet.
3 of these students went on to record for State: Deepali Advani, Sara Hernandez, and Zach Flores.

CHS was the school that had the most students make the band AND was the only school to have not one, but two freshmen record for State.

This past Monday and Tuesday, the All-Region Jazz Band met at Greenhill in Addison and performed their concert last night under the direction of Bob Beshears from Garland HS.

All of our students worked extremely hard for this event and we are very proud of all their hard work. The next event to look forward to for the jazz program is this January where we will be taking our bands to perform at the Jazz Education Network.

Go Bobcats!
