Logan Selected to Honor Jazz Band

The KMEA Northwest Kansas District Mini Convention I was held on November 7th at Hays High School in Hays, Kansas. The convention features concerts by three groups of outstanding young musicians, the High School Honor Jazz Band, the Junior High Honor Band and the Junior High Honor Choir.

Musicians from the 22 county Northwest Kansas District submit audition CDs from which the top instrumentalists are selected for the Honor Bands.

Logan Whitmore, a sophomore at SFCHS, was one of five trumpet players selected to perform with the High School Honor Jazz Band. This small ensemble of 20 talented high school musicians presented several well known jazz selections made famous by the Count Basie Orchestra. The Jazz Band was under the direction of Clint Ashlock, renowned jazz trumpeter, composer and arranger from Kansas City.

This was Logan’s second year to be selected for the High School Honor Jazz Band. 

Congratulations Logan!
