LMS, LHS musicians to perform at MSUB Jazz Fest

On Friday, Jan. 27, the Laurel Middle School and Laurel High School Jazz Bands will be performing at the annual MSUB Jazz Festival. This is an all-day event that involves many area jazz bands from various middle schools, high schools and colleges. In addition to performing for adjudication, the jazz bands will attend three masterclasses specific to jazz ensemble playing, and will get to see guest artist Katisse Buckingham, a noted jazz saxophone and flute player, perform along with the MSUB Jazz Band at their concert at 7 p.m. in Petro Theater. 
The LHS Jazz Band meets during the school day, but the LMS Jazz Band meets in the mornings a few days a week from 7-8 a.m. Both groups have worked hard to prepare for this event. According to Band Director Chris Bidwell, the LMS Jazz Band is brand new this year and has gotten off to a great start.
Both jazz bands have performed in the community at various events this school year including senior centers and shopping bazaars.
The LHS Jazz Band performs in Petro Theater at 8:30 a.m. The LMS Jazz Band performs in Cisel Hall at 2:15 p.m. Both performances are open to the public, however the evening performance with MSUB’s Jazz Band and Katisse Buckingham will have an admission of $10.
Members of the LMS Jazz Band are LT Johannsen, Emily Virgil, Jaedra Hale, Landen Peak, Isaac Nieto, Dylan Wagner, Colton Trostle, Donnie Ellingson, Easton Khyl, Logan Vincent, Jacob Rutschke, Landen Baxter, TJ Edstrom, Colton Folts, Samantha Jones, and Aydn Thayer.
