Twenty-eight San Jacinto College music students were selected for two-year college All-State choir, jazz band, and symphonic band — the highest honor community college music students can achieve.
Four of these students have earned spots in two different ensembles or through two different instruments.
“For the third year in a row, San Jac has more students represented in the All-State ensembles than any other community college in the state,” said Lynne Brandt, department chair of music and audio engineering. “We are so proud of their hard work and hours of rehearsal time that led to their achievement.”
