Post date: Mar 30, 2011 7:44:29 PM

Congratulations are in order for our outstanding Jazz Band! Last Thursday the band played for the entire school. They were well received and given a standing ovation. Having practiced for weeks at 7:30 a.m., it was clear that

their hard work and dedication would pay off at the competition.

On Saturday at the State Middle School Jazz Band Festival, the Jazz Band received a top score of "1". This is the first time a Tremont Jazz Band has ever scored a "1"! Mrs. Whitener was thrilled, as were the musicians and parents in attendance. They received a nice plaque to commemorate this accomplishment. This was a great finish to a week of honors for Mrs. Whitener!

Jazz Band members are: Caroline Driscoll, Caleb Graham, Henry Helmke, Casey Keenan, Aaron Miller, Julia Mace, Devin Christianson, Seth Clark, Abby Kelley, Owen Mild, Paige Murphy, Emma Watras, and Jose Chumbe. Great Job Jazz Band!!
