This Past Friday, April 1, 2016, the Lake Jackson Intermediate Jazz Band was able to participate in the Bill Watrous Festival at Sam Houston State University. There were some amazing, well known musicians that the students were able to meet and hear them display their musical abilities on their instruments. These musicians also help clinic our band as well put on an amazingly musical concert that evening performing with the SHSU Jazz Band.
In addition to these great experiences the LJIS Jazz Band won the first place trophy for their division. We also were able to see our own Brazoswood HS Jazz Band AM and PM sweep the “Second Band” division and also the “Top Band” division with first place trophies of their own. What a great day to be a part of the Brazosport ISD Bands.
Members of the Lake Jackson Intermediate Jazz Band are as follows:
Hans Aggarwal, Ian Michael Barr, Wyatt Barrier, Hunter Brooks, Joshua Gillis, Madison Habeck, Christopher Hoyles, Brock Cotton Massey, Sophia Marianna Massey, Eli Matteck, Kristen Mckenney, Alexander Moore, Wesley Parks, Cole Potter, Grace Sargent, Bryce Sidney, Christopher Smith, and Sarah Soto.
