Mills Jazz Ensemble Receives Unanimous Superior Award at the CMEA Jazz Festival

CMEA Jazz 2015.jpgThe Mills High School Jazz Ensemble received the Unanimous Superior Award at the California Music Educators Association (CMEA) Jazz Festival. This is Mills Jazz Band’s first Unanimous Superior rating in 30 years.  Music Instructor Doug Miner states that the outstanding rating is the result of very hard work and dedication by the young musicians. They deserve extra “kudos” for receiving this ranking with a small group and unusual instrumentation; they do not have a drummer or trumpet player. Congratulations Mills Jazz Ensemble for this prestigious award! Visit www.millsmusic.org to learn more.
