The Northwest District #1 Jazz Ensembles Performed on Saturday, November 18th at Missouri Western State University. We had a great day of jazz learning and I want to thank our host, Mr. Bob Long, for reserving the space for us and putting together the programs for the event. I also would like to thank the students of the MWSU Jazz Ensemble for holding off their Thanksgiving break to perform at the concert that evening!
The Junior High Band was directed by Mr. David Kobberdahl, Band Director in the West Des Moines School District. The High School Band was directed by Dr. David Aaberg from the University of Central Missouri. Thank you both for your excellent work with our students!
Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank the directors of the students who performed for their preparation of their students as well as helping rehearse the groups the Wednesday evening prior to the event. I am always blown away by the level of dedication the teachers in our district give to their students.
