Contributed by Lynda Alley, EHS Band and Orchestra Director:

The Enumclaw High School Jazz Band went to the Auburn Riverside Jazz Invitational Competition on Saturday, January 23rd. Not only did the band compete but they went to various clinics for their specific instrument and had improv clinics with professional Jazz musicians. EHS took 2nd place in our division as Bellevue took 1st overall. K. SHOE WON THE OVERALL 1st PLACE SOLOIST AWARD with her smokin' drumming skills! 

Please congratulate the jazz band members if you see them. We have a beautiful trophy to add to our collection and as C. Beinke said on Saturday (which I think speaks for the group), "I learned more today from one on one conversations with Bobby Medina to the listening of great jazz bands from our state than I have in all the years I've been playing trumpet."
