Congratulations to Matthew Esneault, alto saxophone, and Andrew Messina, percussionist, who were selected by audition to perform with the 2016 EBR All-Parish Middle School Jazz Ensemble.  This ensemble features the top middle school jazz instrumentalists in the parish and it is an honor for not only the student but for the entire school to be represented in this band.
