John Adams Middle School Wind ensemble selected to perform at the 2011 California all-state music educators conference!

 

The John Adams Middle School (JAMS) Wind Ensemble, conducted by Angela Woo, has been selected to perform at the 2011 California All-State Music Educators Conference on February 18, 2011, at the Fresno Convention Center. 

 

As the only middle school band in the state to receive this honor, the JAMS Wind Ensemble will participate in the inaugural conference that will bring together the four statewide music educators associations in an unprecedented convention: the California Band Directors Association (CBDA), the California Orchestra Directors Association (CODA), the California Alliance for Jazz (CAJ), and the California Music Education Association (CMEA).

 

The JAMS Wind Ensemble, the advanced level band at JAMS, has consistently earned the highest possible ratings at ensemble performance festivals.  Last year, ten members of the Wind Ensemble were selected by audition to participate as California All-State Jr. High Honor Band musicians.

 

For more information, including donation opportunities, please contact Angela Woo at awoo@smmusd.org or (310) 452-2326 ext. 72-226.
