CBDA All State Honor Band- Congratulations to Mollie Budiansky, Jamie Bastian and Jeylan Yagmur for making California All State Band. The three students traveled to Fresno over February break to work with guest conductors and play a concert. More than one thousands students entered, and it is a big honor to make the band.
Forty AHS student musicians performed at the California Music Educators Association Jazz Festival in San Francisco on Saturday, February 7, 2009. The AHS Jazz Lab and Jazz Band plus the two jazz combos came away with superior ratings. Both jazz combos, as well as the Jazz Band, received unanimous superior ratings from judges. The students played incredibly well.
Over 30 Bay Area schools participated in the festival.
