Upper Schoolers participate in Maine All State Jazz Band
Congratulations to Max Polsky ’23 and Oscar Twining ’23, who last weekend participated in the Maine All State Jazz Band!
Max and Oscar traveled to Bangor High School for three days of rehearsal and performance. While rehearsing the band on their three charts, Dr. Nathan Jorgenson—director of jazz studies at University of New Hampshire—coached students on jazz style, technique, and improvisation. The ensemble was coached by other clinicians, including jazz legend Jim McNeally. The concert featured three instrumental and two vocal ensembles comprised of 89 students from more than 25 different schools across the state.
