CHS Jazz Band Members at Region Competition
Posted on 09/21/2016
CISD White Logo12 members of the CHS Jazz Band participated in the Region Jazz Band Competition at Alvarado HS. I would like to recognize Javier T. for making 5th chair trumpet in the Region Jazz Band and Bryan R. for making 1st chair bari sax in the Region Jazz Band. These students will combine with students from other schools to form the Region Jazz Band that has their clinics and concert on Nov. 14 and 15th.

Bryan R. made it to Area and earned the chance to record for State by being 1st chair and will record next week to see how he stacks up against the other Bari saxes in the other regions. We also had an alternate trumpet player, Arnoldo C., who will fill in if someone is sick.

Other students who got very close to making the band were: Joanna C. (3rd chair Bari sax), Naomi J. (7th chair trumpet), Vanessa T. (8th chair trumpet), Phoenix L. (5th chair drum set), Alvaro A. (4th chair tenor sax), Rito V. (6th chair trombone), Sebastian H. (7th chair trombone), Devontae L. (11th chair alto sax), and Carolina B. (12th chair trumpet). Please congratulate these students and Mr. Morales when you see them!

The Castleberry jazz band is making awesome music!
