Band Members Selected for Honor Jazz Band
Band Members Selected for 9-10 Honor Jazz Band
Houston High School Band members Maria (Tenor Sax) and Brandon (Trumpet) will be part of the Southeast Minnesota Band Directors Association 9-10 Honor Jazz Band this Saturday, March 7.  Maria is a freshman at Houston and Brandon is a sophomore.   The students were chosen on the recommendation of their director, Paul Grupe. 
 
The students will travel to Medford, MN, where four Honor Jazz Bands will rehearse for the day and perform a concert at 3:00 p.m. at the Medford School.  The Bands will be made up of 7-8 graders from South Central MN, 7-8 graders from Southeast MN, 9-10 graders from South Central MN and 9-10 graders from Southeast MN.
 
This is a prestigious honor for these students as these Honor Jazz Bands have only 1 player per part.  The students have been busy preparing their parts beforehand and will come together for a couple short rehearsals before the 3:00 concert. Parents and the public are welcome to attend the concert.
