UPDATE: The Pleasant Valley Jazz Choirs ranked top in the state. Jazz Etc placed 3rd at the competition and Leading Tones placed 4th. Congratulations!
On March 29, PVHS will have not one, but two Jazz Choirs performing in the state competition. The members of Leading Tones and Jazz Etc are ready for the state stage and they’re looking to bring home some hardware. Pleasant Valley is just one of two schools who will have more than one choir participate, plus only 25 choirs from across Iowa advanced to the state competition. A big honor for two of our choirs!
Students performed their sets on Monday, March 21, for other choir students, but also some special guests. The vocal jazz ensemble from Southwest Community College in Creston, Iowa, along with their director Lucas Mattson, sat in the audience to provide some constructive feedback before the Spartans head to state.
Jazz Etc will perform at 5:20pm and Leading Tones at 6:20pm at Valley High
School in Des Moines on Tuesday, March 29. The Spartans travel well, so we know some of you will want to make the trip!
