All Region Jazz Band Results Are In!

Mrs. Fairlie and Mr. Batson would like to congratulate the students who auditioned for the Region 8 Middle School All Region Jazz Band this past Friday.  Lamar had approximately 20 students audition among over 150 students from the Waco, Temple, Belton and Killeen area.

There are only 20 students in total who make the All Region Jazz Band, and this year 5 are members of the Lamar Jazz Band...25% of the Band.

Those students are:

Carter Myers 1st Chair Trumpet

Tatem Nichols  4th Chair Trombone

Antonio Hunter 2nd Chair Drumset

Ernesto Lopez 1st Chair Piano

Zakk Diserens 1st Chair Guitar



Ashton Yarbrough  1st Alternate Bass (2nd Chair Overall)

Andreas Schmidt  2nd Alternate Trombone (7th Chair Overall)


We are extremely proud of all of the students who auditioned for the Band.  This was an extremely competitive audition process.  Way to go Bearcat Jazz Band!!!
