The MDI High School has had a busy last 2 weeks, performing at the State Jazz Festival at Hampden Academy on March 18th and the University of New Hampshire Clark Terry Jazz Festival on March 11th.

In Hampden the MDI Big Band received a Gold Award and outstanding musicianship awards were given to senior Jonathon Matthieu for his lead trumpet playing/soloing and to senior Treyan Nelson for his drumming.

In New Hampshire, the Big Band received an "Outstanding Band" award for their class, which was the highest award at that festival.

Again, Matthieu and Nelson were recognized for their playing.

Thanks to Michael Remy for the information
