Members of the Stephenville High School Yellow Jacket Jazz Ensemble recently participated in the ATSSB Region 7 Honor Jazz Band clinic and concert at Tarleton State University.

“The auditions for the region jazz band happened back in September,” said Director of Bands Michael Childs. “This is the payoff for being selected to the group.”

Stephenville students made up more than half of the band with other students from Eastland, Brownwood, Iowa Park, Olney and Wichita Falls Herschi.

Band members worked on a challenging program with Tarleton faculty member Greg Ball that was then performed.

“I’m really proud of how hard these students worked to get the music ready and their concert was outstanding,” Childs said.
