On Saturday, students in the Carroll Jazz program produced exceptional results at All-Region Jazz Auditions for TMEA Region 31, which consists of the Carrollton-Farmers Branch, Coppell, Grapevine-Colleyville, HEB, Birdville and Carroll school districts. Out of 40 available chairs in two jazz ensembles, Carroll Dragons occupy 24.
Twelve Dragons qualified to move on to the Area jazz round. They will record auditions for the TMEA All-State Jazz Ensembles on September 28. Twenty-four All-Region Jazz members will participate in the All-Region clinic and concert on November 16 and 17. Their clinicians include professor Jim Riggs of UNT and Mark DeHertogh of Plano Senior High School.
