Elijah M. In the Texas All-State Jazz Ensemble

Elijah in one of his lessons.

We want to congratulate Elijah M. once again. This time he secured second chair in the Texas All-State Jazz Ensemble 1.

In some respects, the All-State Jazz Ensemble is the most prestigious band at the TMEA convention. This is partly because they only take ten players (it used to be five). It’s also the earliest audition in the year, coming before both the orchestra and the band auditions.

Elijah has been Mr. Lewis’ student since he was in fourth or fifth grade. It has been a pleasure to see him mature over the years.

Congratulations Elijah. We are proud of you!
