On Friday January 30th, thirteen Waco I.S.D. students (three from Carver MS, three from Indian Spring MS, and seven from Tennyson MS) attended the TMEA Region 8 Middle School Jazz auditions in Temple Texas. Each student performed two prepared etudes in front of five judges. There were a total of 138 students auditioning for 18 spots. We are pleased to announce that two of our WISD students made the cut to perform in the ALL Region Middle school jazz band.
Carolina Ugarte, 8th grader from Tennyson MS, made 4th chair trumpet and Yasherra Jackson, 8th grader from Indian Spring made 1st chair trombone!
These students will perform with the Middle School region 8 jazz ensemble on March 28th at the Temple Jazz festival, on the campus of Temple College. Please join our entire band staff in congratulating these students on their outstanding accomplishment. We are extremely proud of all these young musicians and their efforts in continuing jazz education throughout Waco ISD.
