Emma Clarke, a member of the Yellow Jacket Jazz Ensemble, has been selected as the 3rd chair trumpet for the all-state jazz band, SHS band director Michael Childs told the E-T. 

“There are only five trumpet spots available for this elite group out of approximately 400 students who auditioned from around the state,” Childs said. “She will be performing with the all-state jazz ensemble in February at the Texas Music Educators Association convention in San Antonio.”

This is Clarke’s third time to be selected for an all-state band and her first for the all-state jazz ensemble.
