Big congrats to Mr. Ottmar and the Jazz Ensemble. They were selected as the high school featured jazz ensemble to perform at the Iowa Bandmaster's Association conference on May 9, in Des Moines. But that isn't all, the wind ensemble was also selected to perform as the featured Class 4A concert ensemble. This is a very rare occurrence to have both the jazz and concert bands from one school as the featured performers in the same year. The performance dates are Thursday, May 9 at 8:30pm for jazz ensemble and Friday, May 10 at 5:00pm for wind ensemble. Just further confirmation of the outstanding band program at City High. This is the highest achievement for any jazz or concert band ensemble in the state of Iowa.

Hi all,Attached please find the Summer newsletter for the City High Marching Band 2018. Please read all of the information carefully, and please place all band events on your calendars. Just a reminder, all band activities are required, so please be aware of all band dates as you make plans.Also, there were many students that did not take marching band shoes home at the end of the school year. These shoes, since none were marked, have been placed in large bins, paired by size. If you left shoes, you should plan to come early on the first day of heck week to retrieve them.Finally, just a note to let you know of the big evening planned for , our home football game vs Ames high. We will be joined by the 8th grade band from Southeast, and will have as our very special guest the University of Iowa Hawkeye Marching Band under the direction of new assistand director of bands Eric Bush. This should be a fun evening not only for our band program, but for the community as well.Have a great rest of the Summer, and I look forward to seeing you in August.Dr. M
