If practice makes perfect, the Emmetsburg High School Jazz Band is going to be right in the hunt this Saturday afternoon, Dec. 3. The ensemble of jazz musicians will be participating in the North Central Iowa Bandmasters Association Jazz Festival at Fort Dodge. Under the direction of Ms. Holly Prier, the E-Hawk Jazz Band has been putting in hours of practice in preparation for their appearance Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at the Fort Dodge Senior High School. Members of the Emmetsburg Jazz Band include Gene Lowman on flute, Phoenix Campbell and Madison Olson on Tenor sax, Gabrielle Janssen and Jacklyn Radvansky on alto sax and Zach Doidge on the baritone saxophones. The brass section is comprised of trombones Colton Johnson and Max Miller and trumpet players Shane Moffitt, Alexander Gray and Zach Yates. The rythm section is comprised of Hannah Joyce onbass, Thomas Woodford on piano and Matthew Hill and Dylan Rehm on the drums. The North Central Iowa Bandmasters Association Jazz Band Festival will feature 16 bands, including Emmetsburg, from throughout central Iowa, including two bands from from Fort Dodge and bands from St. Edmond High School, Manson Northwest Webster, and South Central Calhoun among others. The festival features not only performances by groups, but also clinic sessions for the student musicians as well. “This type of festival with the performance and clinic is very beneficial to the students as they prepare for future jazz contests,” noted Roger Steig, Fort Dodge Senior High School Direcctor of Bands. The festival is open to the public with a small admission fee.
