Jazz Band, 1st Place (Excellent rating)

String Orchestra, 3rd Place (Excellent rating)

Concert Band, 5th Place (Excellent rating)

Jackson Delaney (8th grader) was awarded Outstanding Jazz Soloist of the competition (photo below):

  1. I am so proud of our young musicians for how well they played on stage, but in particular for how fantastically well behaved, appreciative, and positive they were for the entire weekend. You made your school proud!

  3. Congratulations to everyone! To the musicians who practiced hard and performed so well. And to the parents and staff who worked so hard to make this trip a safe and successful one. And especially to Mr. Bathum for being such a great teacher, and to Violet Fong for leading the parent booster group.

    Kids, keep on playin’!

  4. I agree with everything that was said in the above comments. Clark Bathum is a band God and walks on water as far as I am concerned ! Violet is the volunteer extraordinaire and the parents who chaperoned should be pampered for at least a week !
    Thank you everyone that made this possible, what a way to cap off my daughter’s last year at Madison.
