On April 18th, both the Shasta Jazz Band and the Session Jazz Choir competed against schools from Oregon and Washington at the Pleasant Hill Jazz Festival. The Jazz Band received a 2nd Place trophy in a very competitive division and scored outstanding marks for their performances. The Session Jazz Choir came away with a 3rd Place trophy, finishing one point behind the two finalists while receiving excellent scores for their presentation. The Jazz Band will compete at the Bellevue Jazz Festival May 8th and 9th while the Shasta Choirs (7th and 8th grades) travel to the Best of the Northwest Concert Choir Festival at the University of Portland on May 8th. Session Jazz Choir will also travel to Doernbecher Hospital at the end of May to perform for the children in the care facility.
