KSAL StaffApril 16, 2014

The Lakewood Middle School Jazz Band is recognized for performance excellence.

According to USD 305, the band received a superior rating and brought a trophy back from the 32nd Annual Northeast Community College Jazz Festival in Norfolk Nebraska.

The LMS Jazz Band competed against 17 groups. The contest included musicians from 10 states including Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Montana. The Band played for three judges and was limited to 25 minutes to set up, perform and pack up in order that they not receive a penalty.

“This is our first time competing in this contest and we are all very proud of the accomplishment,” said director Jake Montoya.

A couple of soloists received superior certificates for performances. Will Hayes played the trumpet and Sean Rahman played the flugelhorn.
