All Region Jazz Band

On Saturday, September 18th, 18 students auditioned for the ATSSB Region 25 Jazz Band. Each student prepared four separate pieces in addition to an improvised solo. Students from all over region competed for 20 spots in the 2021 All Region Jazz Band. Of those 20 spots, Anna Jazz Band students earned 7, and 2 were named alternates. Those students are: 

Jacob Grohs, 1st Alto Saxophone 

Kevin Medina, 1st Tenor Saxophone 

Brayden Doucette, 2nd Tenor Saxophone

The Anna Jazz Band has the most representatives in the All Region Jazz Band of any of the school that competed. This is the third consecutive year that we have earned this accomplishment.  7 of these students also qualified to submit recordings for the next level of competition, Area, to have a shot at making the All State Jazz Band.  These recordings will take place Wednesday, September 29th at Celina High School.
