Jazz ensemble earn top award at festival, then feast on chicken

The Augusta High School Jazz Ensemble earned a I rating at the Pittsburg 
Jazz Festival on Friday, March 2.

Two members of the band, trumpeter Mike Lakey and pianist Allison Berner 
earned "Outstanding Musician" citations for their solos.

  The AHS Band performed at Pittsburg's Memorial Auditorium downtown and 
was one of 60 bands from Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.

The festival's headliner, legendary trumpeter John Faddis and the Chicago 
Jazz Orchestra had to cancel their evening performance due to inclement 
weather in the Chicago area.

The Augusta Band enjoyed a family style chicken dinner at Chicken Annie's 
in Girard.
