It’s a Hat Trick for the Shasta Jazz Band

On Saturday, January 28th, students in the Shasta Middle School Jazz band were featured as one of the outstanding ensembles invited to perform at the 24th Annual Oregon Jazz Festival. Luke Turner, an 8th grade tenor saxophone player at Shasta, was also chosen to perform as an outstanding soloist with the University of Oregon jazz ensemble.

While the Oregon Jazz Festival is a non-competitive festival, judges pick exceptional bands from the day to perform at the evening concert. For three years in a row, Shasta has been chosen out of 28 bands to showcase their talent. This year’s concert also featured Lane and University of Oregon’s Jazz Ensembles, as well as the Grammy nominated saxophonist, Ben Wendel.

Shasta Jazz Band had a busy month! On January 14th they performed by invitation at the Oregon Music Educators State Conference. They were only one of two middle school bands from the state selected to perform at the prestigious conference. This was the Shasta Jazz Band’s second state conference performance and their second time performing at the Hult Center this school year. The band was presented a plaque for their contributions.

The Oregon Jazz Festival is a collaboration of the University of Oregon and Lane Community College. Each year this event brings together students, jazz educators, performing artists and enthusiasts to create a positive learning experience for all involved. By sharing resources, the University of Oregon and Lane Community College do a great deal to enhance the jazz experience in our community.

Comprised of 20 young musicians, the Shasta Jazz band performs at various festivals and venues throughout the state each year. Noted for their professionalism, cohesiveness and great style by professional musicians including the legendary Branford Marsalis, this award-winning band leaves a lasting impression with every performance.
