The Castle Band Program had a fantastic weekend performing and competing in different locations. Solos and small ensembles, Jazz Ensemble (3 of them!), Winter Percussion Ensemble, JV Guard, Varsity Guard all performed. It is worth noting that these groups are optional events for our students. I think this goes to show how much fun we have in the Castle Band program and our students and parents love to be involved with us!
Three Jazz bands performed at the University of Louisville Jazz Festival Friday. The following students were awarded outstanding performer awards
