Our Brewer Community School Jazz Band performed with a maturity beyond their years on March 22, earning a gold award and second place trophy in the highly competitive Division II. Brewer Middle School/Brewer Community School Jazz Bands have placed in the top three in the state since 2006. Featured saxophone soloist, eighth grader Ben B., gave listeners goosebumps and moved some to tears with his beautiful rendition of “Summer of ’42″. Ben was awarded one of five outstanding musicianship trophies for his solo work and excellent lead alto playing. All of Brewer’s soloists received outstanding musicianship certificates: trumpeter Devon M., saxophonists Cameron B., Nathan W. and Ben B., bassist Robben H., and drummer Paul F. We should be especially proud of the accolades the band received for their excellent behavior.
