Publish Date: 10/25/2021

Two Marion High School band students have been selected to perform in the Indiana Jazz Educators Association All-District Jazz Band.

The musicians selected are:

  • Rylan Smithley, sophomore
  • Aiden Johnson, sophomore

Both students were recommended by their band director, Mr. Huff, and submitted applications to be considered for the honor band earlier this year. Applications from students around the area were evaluated to select members of this talented group. Selected musicians are now tasked with practicing the musical selections in preparation for the upcoming performance.

On Nov. 13, honor band members from around the district will gather to rehearse together for the first time. Then, on Sunday, Nov. 14, they will perform together at Pendleton Heights High School; more details for this performance will be released when available.

Congratulations to these talented, hard-working students on this great accomplishment! The All-District Jazz Band is a great opportunity, and will give them a chance to learn and grow as musicians.
