Assumption Students Win International Music Competition in New York


The Assumption Jazz Band placed first in the Festivals of Music Competition in New York City this past weekend.  The Concert band placed second at the Competition as well.  This International competition featured several groups from all over North America.

Mr. Zanier, music teacher of the both the regular music program and the International Baccalaureate Music Program as well as leading the concert band, jazz band, and choir, was very pleased: “I am extremely proud of how our students handled themselves with respect, humility, and grace. One of the judges even commented on the fact that our students were in it for the right reasons."

Last week at the Symphonic Youth Society’s Regional MusicFest at Essex High School, both bands received Gold Medals and Christian Vegh was named Top Musician in the Jazz Ensemble.
