Jackson-Milton Middle School and High School had several students performing this past weekend in honor bands! These students spent just three days of rehearsal putting music together for their Saturday Concerts.
Performing with the Ohio Music Education Association District 5 Junior High Honors Band were Makenzie Truslow (trumpet), Josie Bayer (flute), and Prentiss Fishtorn (tenor sax). They were selected out of students from Mahoning, Ashtabula, and Trumbull counties to participate with about 105 other students. They had the privilege of working with world renowned composer Randall Standridge. We at Jackson-Milton consistently play pieces written by Mr. Standridge, including one we are working on right now, "Santa the Barbarian".
JM also had two students in the OMEA District 5 High School Honors Band: Aiden Cole and Lorelei Bayer - both clarinets. They had to submit audition videos to be accepted into the ensemble. They worked with Dr. Jeffrey Gershman, currently Director of Bands at The College of Wooster. Dr. Gershman is a nationally renowned conductor, with both professional ensembles and high school honor bands. He also has an annual series with the Dallas Wind Symphony, one of the few professional wind band ensembles in the country.
Finally, Delaney Crytzer performed with the top honors band at the Bowling Green State University High School Honor Band Festival, under the direction of Dr. Kenneth Thompson. During her time there she had the opportunity to work with other BGSU faculty in masterclass sessions, as well as see several performances of BGSU's music ensembles.
Congratulations to Makenzie, Josie, Prentiss, Aiden, Lorelei, and Delaney!
