The Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School Jazz Band under the direction of Alex Pendleton earned platinum status at the Great East Music Festival in Palmer, May 20.
The band has been offered as a class at D-Y for two years. “The Judges couldn’t believe we got a platinum that quickly,” Pendleton said Monday. Students performed before two judges, both professional jazz musicians. “We only do this once a year,” Pendleton said, “It’s a great opporutnity for the kids to compete against themselves, not against any other group.”
