Jazz in the Meadows Results

Thanks to everyone for making the 26th annual Jazz in the Meadows festival a success. Thank you to the schools, performers, volunteers, sponsors, attendees, judges, parents, teachers, staff, family members, friends, and anyone I’ve forgotten.

If you weren’t able to catch the Tim Seisser Quintet at noon, videos of their performance are on the Music Boosters YouTube channel (with their permission, of course).

From Christopher Buti (Director of Bands, Color Guard, and Fine Arts Coordinator):

Each year we announce the outstanding jazz soloist from each class. This year there were many qualified participants, but unfortunately we can only award per class.
