A message from Emily Hurd, Director, Meadowdale High School
While the last several years have been tumultuous for many, they’re nothing to the experience of the last few months. Congratulations to a group of incredibly tough individuals. I am so proud of you, and can’t wait to see what you do next. Happy practicing!
A message from Jake Bergevin, Director, Edmonds- Woodway High School
I’m really proud of the hard work and dedication of our Edmonds-Woodway HS 2020 Jazz Graduates. This year’s crop of seniors were talented and motivated … a good combination. EW Jazz Ensemble won the sweepstakes at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival for the 3rd year in a row and many students were winners in their categories independently. Countless gigs and zero hour rehearsals tested their endurance and perseverance. I know they will go on as life-long musicians and cherish their time at EWHS. I’m sorry that they didn’t get to finish what was started so well. Congratulations and Best Wishes!
