Abigail McCraney

Michelle LeBatard

Abbey Hardeman

Cassidy Washam

Kora Marshall

These students were selected by audition from all over the school system. The Jazz Band will consist of 19 MCPSS students and SMS took 13 of those spots! Congratulations!

Also our Jazz Band competed in the Alabama Bandmaster’s Association’s Solo & Ensemble Contest and received a superior rating with straight A’s in all categories. We brought the 3 judges to their feet in applause. Way to go Jazz Band members!

We are competing in the annual Southern Star Music Festival in Atlanta, GA along with our Advanced Band. There will be around 25 bands there from all over the southeast United States like us trying to play their best. If you are currently in the 6th grade and would like to join the band program next year, please see Mr. Bean for more information.
