JHS students chosen for honor band

Three students from Jefferson High School in Alexandria were selected to participate in the University of Minnesota Honor Band Festival January 27-29.

Alex Blaser, who plays oboe, and trumpet players Claire Donovan and Spencer Brand were selected to the honor band by a recorded audition that consisted of five minutes of contrasting solo literature.

The University of Minnesota Honor Band Festival provides students with an educational opportunity to perform in chamber ensembles and the full honor band. Students in the ensemble had the opportunity to work with the faculty of the school of music and with conductors Dr. Craig Kirchhoff and Dr. Tim Diem.
