Congrats Again to Jazz 1: The final standings for the Essentially Ellington competition were just announced and BHS Jazz place 6th overall. Mr. James was thrilled with this result as there was a higher level of competition from all 15 schools than in 2012, when the band placed 7th. In recognition of this honor, Jazz 1 will meet with Mayor Durkan at City Hall on Friday at 1:00 pm. It was a special year for Jazz and BPA in general.
