MRH HS Students make All-State Jazz Band
On December 3, 2011 MRH Instrumental Music Director Jason Harris traveled to Columbia, Missouri with three MRH HS students to compete in the All-State Jazz Band and Concert Band auditions. Those auditioning included sophomores Zach Arias, Thomas Barron and John O’Keefe.
Over 1,300 students from throughout the state of Missouri auditioned for a limited number of spots including over 300 for the jazz band. One guitarist and five trumpets were selected for the All-State Jazz Band including:
- Zach Arias - guitar chair
- Thomas Barron - 3rd trumpet chair
Both students will attend the Missouri Music Educators Association (MMEA) convention at Tan-Tar-A Resort in January 2012 for a 4-day festival.
Congratulations to these students for their accomplishments!
