MUSIC IN THE PARKS


On April 19, The Minisink Valley High School Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble traveled to Universal Studios in Orlando Florida.  The purpose of our trip was to compete at the “Music in the Parks” national music competition. 

 

We are proud to announce that the Jazz Ensemble received the highest score of all groups who participated at the festival.  Mitchell Sumner, a Jazz Ensemble Drum Set player, received an “outstanding soloist award” for his dazzling drum set solo on the song “Tenor Madness”.  Our Concert Band received first place in our division and the award for best overall high school concert band.  Congratulations to all band members and to their teacher, Joe Horner.
