All Jazz, All Day
The Northwest is home to an abundance of talented musicians at both the high school and professional level and the MHS Jazz Band is right in there with them. They spent Saturday at the Pleasant Hill Jazz Festival performing, listening, attending clinics and doing an outstanding job representing the quality of music being made at MHS. There are also many dedicated and skilled educators, such as our own David Barton, who challenge and inspire students to create great music. It was a distinct pleasure to hear the quality of music being produced by these vocal and instrumental jazz ensembles from around the region.

See you soon,
