Concert Band: Julian Chancellor, 7th chair Alto Saxophone; Bruno Deleon, 8th chair Baritone; Megan Denson, 4th chair Bassoon; Edward Moya, 16th chair Percussion; and Alejandro Rosiles-Cervantes, 14th chair Percussion.
“I am so proud of all the MPJH students who auditioned for the All-Region bands,” said MPJHS Band Director Karen Luckett. “Twenty-four students auditioned for placement in one of two all-region bands (Symphonic and Concert Band). Out of those 24 students, twelve of them earned chairs in the All-Region bands. All of these students put in an extensive amount of time and effort to prepare for these auditions. I congratulate all of these students whether they made the All-Region bands or not.”
