This past August 7, 2010, the CHS Studio Jazz Band was crowned the 2010 Cavalcade of Bands Liberty Division CHAMPIONS!!!  Competing with bands from throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey at this final Championship event of the season, our jazz band performed to the crowd's delight and received the following awards:

- Superior Rating with perfect scores in numerous judging categories
- Best Trombone Section Award
- Best Soloist Award for freshman pianist Jordan Williams, his 4th solo award of the season
- Honorable Mention Soloist Award for sophomore guitarist, Sam Mercurio
- Best Overall Jazz Band and 2010 Division Champions

Given the magnitude of this particular achievement, which truly is remarkable given that this is only our 2nd season ever in Cavalcade competition, I am hoping we can recognize the members of the jazz band publicly on the website and/or on Channel 42, etc. as you see fit.  They really have worked so incredibly hard to earn this honor and have brought regional recognition to
Cheltenham HS through their success this past weekend.

Below is some more background info about the Cavalcade of Bands circuit and our upcoming 4th Annual Michael Brecker Tribute Concert and Banquet.

Over the last two months, the
CHS Studio Jazz Band performed at 7 Cavalcade of Bands Jazz Festivals leading up to the Championship event on April 17.  The judges for the festivals are college jazz professors and professional jazz musicians, who provide detailed critique and evaluation in 7 categories to help the band improve.  The bands receive ratings of "Superior, "Outstanding", "Very Good", or "Good" based on the judges' scores at each show.  The highest rating of Superior is extremely hard to achieve and requires perfect scores in several judging categories.  At the Championship event, the band with the best overall score is crowned the Division Champion.

You can catch the all-star musicians of the
CHS Jazz Band in action on Friday June 4, 2010 at 7:30 PM at the 4th Annual Michael Brecker Tribute Concert and Banquet to be held at Cedarbrook MS.  This wonderful charity event features a catered dinner affair with jazz music throughout the night performed by our CHS and Cedarbook jazz students.  Tickets are $25 per person and proceeds benefit the Michael Brecker "Time is of the Essence" Fund and Jazz Scholarship Fund.  Contact Alexis Cogan, CHS Band Parents Association President, at cogana@temple.edu<mailto:cogana@temple.edu> to purchase tickets or for more information.
