On Saturday, January 29th, the Warren G. Harding H.S. Band had seven students perform at the Ohio Music Education Association’s District 5 Jazz Festival.
The students were selected through a video audition process and then were placed in one of three county honors bands representing Trumbull, Mahoning and Ashtabula counties.
All three bands had an evening rehearsal last week, a day of rehearsals this past Friday, and performed a concert Saturday at the DeYor Performing Arts Center.
