PSU Jazz Festival (Junior High)

The 8th grade and 7th grade jazz bands will be traveling to Pittsburg, Kansas to participate in the PSU jazz festival. Students will perform prepared pieces for a panel of judges and receive a contest rating.  The judges will work with the ensemble and provide feedback. To do our best it will be vital that we have all of our performers at the performance. In addition to performing, we will watch the NHS jazz groups as well as other jazz bands perform. They will need their black Neosho Junior High band t-shirt and black dress pants for the performance.  Students will also need to bring money ($7.00) for dinner at CC's Pizza in Joplin.  I will collect the Money along with their permission slip.
