It's All About That Bass for MRH Middle Schooler Olivia Ceballos
MRH 8th Grade student Olivia Ceballos has won a seat in the Middle School All-Suburban Jazz Band for her skills on electric bass.
On Monday, students from the MRH MS Instrumental Music Program attended auditions at Clayton High School to be a part of the 2019-20 Middle School All-Suburban Jazz Band. These auditions featured students from area Middle Schools throughout St. Louis and St. Charles County and hundreds of middle school band students from the region were in attendance.
The bass guitar position is one of the most difficult seats to attain as only one student receives a spot in the ensemble on that instrument. Olivia successfully completed a prepared audition, and a group “head-to-head” callback audition to claim her place in the ensemble.
Olivia will be rehearsing with the band and eighteen other students from around the area to prepare a final concert on Sunday, January 12 at 2pm, at Kirkwood High School.
