Jazz Groups Place at State
Central Lyon Jazz Band placed second at the state Iowa Jazz Championships competition in class 1A, the highest finish in school history. In addition, Andrea Korthals was honored with outstanding performer for her trumpet solo. Each year, the top eight bands are publicly recognized at the Jazz Championships, and the top two play on the big stage to compete for first place. It has long been Mr. Langholdt's goal to reach the big stage. In 2012, the jazz band finished third, the highest place prior to achieving his "big stage" goal in 2018.
The Jazz Choir placed third this year at state competition. The group is under the direction of Mrs. Langholdt. Congratulations to both jazz groups!
