All State Jazz Band

Congratulations to Alta-Aurelia band students Abby Kraemer for being selected to the Class 1A/2A Iowa All State Jazz Band on trumpet and to Jason Hinkeldey for being selected as a trumpet alternate. Abby will represent Alta-Aurelia Music at the All-State Jazz Festival at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Des Moines on May 11. Nine A-A students practiced for countless hours and submitted audition tapes for this contest. “The progress made from this process has made our students stronger musicians, and that's a daily goal we strive for,” says jazz band director Corbet Butler.
