The Ranney Performing Arts Department is proud to announce that Jaren Nawy (Piano) '21 and Sam Novotny (Bass) successfully auditioned and were accepted into the All-Shore High Band Director's Top Jazz Band for 2020. Both students auditioned at Hazlet High School on January 21 while performing an etude and a sight-reading example.
They will rehearse with the other students from Monmouth and Ocean Counties during the next two weeks and will perform on Saturday, February 8 at 3:00 p.m. at Historic Long Branch Auditorium. Ranney's own Mr. John Propper will be the conductor for the ensemble this year.
"I'm so proud of what Sam and Jaren were able to accomplish, the auditions were very competitive but they both came out on top." Remarked Mr. Propper.
