Congratulations to the Eisenhower Jazz Ensemble on earning a straight First Division at the 2019 State Jazz Festival! It was a truly outstanding performance and we’re so proud of the effort the students put forth. Of the 5 adjudication categories for each of the 3 judges (15 total), the band earned an A (with 8 A pluses, an A plus plus, and even an A plus plus plus!!) in every single one! Congratulations as well to the Malow JH Jazz Band and their director Mr. Jeff Groth on receiving a Second Division as well!!
We’re also proud to announce that we had 5 students nominated to the Michigan Youth Arts Festival (MYAF) Jazz Band. It is a great honor to even be considered for this ensemble and we wish them the best of luck in making group! They are as follows:
- Abe Ahmed, Trumpet
- Kevin Sachs, Bass
Thank you also to every single parent/student/community member that assisted or volunteered towards the hosting of State Jazz Festival at Eisenhower. It is such a great honor to be selected as a Site Host, and the entire Instrumental Music Program continues to distinguish itself in the way it handles this event. Besides being awesome for our Ike/Malow Jazz student to get to perform “At Home”, it’s a wonderful fundraiser for the entire program. Thanks again to all who helped out!!
