High Desert Jazz
2016 High Desert High School & Middle School Jazz All-Stars
Directors and Students,
It is with a heavy hearts that we announce that there will not be high desert honor jazz groups this year. We simply did have enough students audition to warrant a full high school group, and only three auditioned for the junior high group.
We would like to offer a free Jazz Clinic with Mr. Ray Moreno from Barstow Community College!
Mr. Moreno is currently a faculty member at Barstow Community College as well as a teacher for the Victor Valley Union High School District where he teaches at Lakeview Leadership Academy and Victor Valley High School. These appointments followed several years of success as the band director at Patriot High School in Riverside. Ray has been instrumental in creating a unique Latin Jazz program at his schools.
As an arranger, Raymond has arranged several pieces for marching band, concert band and jazz ensemble, including pieces performed by his championship-winning groups at Patriot HS.
