Middle School Student Participates in Jazz St. Louis’ JazzU Program
Recently, an MRH Middle School student was accepted into Jazz St. Louis’ JazzU Group. JazzU places talented middle and high school student musicians in small jazz combos, which meet weekly. This competitive group meets and works closely with JazzU faculty members, and musicians who participate in the Jazz St. Louis Artist Residency Program.
Jude Tanner, eighth grade student at Maplewood Richmond Heights Middle School, auditioned and was accepted into the program. He was placed in the Aaron Lehde Group playing guitar. For more information visit their website. In 2014, Tanner (along with his younger sister) also participated in Mizzou’s Original Music Program. There they wrote original musical compositions that won statewide recognition.
