Congratulations to the Acalanes High School Jazz Ensemble for their wonderful performance at the 55th Annual Reno Jazz Festival at the University of Nevada on Saturday, April 29. Reno is the largest jazz festival on the West Coast. The professional level adjudicators awarded the ensemble with a Unanimous Superior Rating, good for 2nd place in our division and one of the top scores at the festival. Special congratulations go out to Evan Mickas on Alto Saxophone for being singled out as the festival’s Outstanding High School Saxophone Musician. Great job by Evan and the entire ensemble!
