Parkview Jazz One

Parkview Jazz One, under the direction of Joe Churchich, created history the last weekend of April, taking first place in the Middle School Big Band division at the Eau Claire Jazz Festival. Students from Jazz One also took home individual honors for Excellence in Jazz Performance by Ataa Mensah on drums, Annika Flittie on alto saxophone, and Gabe Hartnett on bari saxophone.

Parkview Jazz Too performed extremely well in the sight-reading category and also in the non-competitive division, winning individual honors for Excellence in Jazz Performance by Connor Campbell on trumpet, Mark Olberding on bari saxophone and Charlie Burkhardt on trombone.

On April 27, Parkview Jazz Combo competed in the high school B/C/D division (there is no middle school division for combo), winning individual honors for Excellence in Jazz Performance and Education by Bridget Keel on trumpet, Mateo Stenberg on bass and Gabe Hartnett on tenor and bari saxophone.
