On Saturday, February 1, jazz bands from Parkview Middle School, Prairie Ridge Middle School, Southview Middle School, Northview Middle School, Ankeny High School, and Centennial High School participated in clinics and a concert with four guest artists.
Our guest artists were Mike McMann, David Koberdahl, Tony Wadle, and Andrew Poppen. While the bands switched over, a Drake jazz combo filled with Ankeny alumni known as “Watercolors” performed.
