Awards and Accomplishments

Congratulations to Mr. Hammond and the High School Jazz Workshop Orchestra for being selected, once again, for the Essential Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition and Festival. This is an extremely rigorous selection process year after year. What makes this year’s selection process very special and an amazing accomplishment, is that this is the 25th Anniversary of the Essential Ellington Competition and Festival and the selection process did not include categories. The selections were made solely on being one of the best performing ensembles across the nation.  Again congratulations to Mr. Hammond and his students.
