Mid-Prairie Jazz brings home a trophy
This past Tuesday, April 8, the Mid-Prairie High School Jazz Band placed in the top eight in class 2A at the Iowa Jazz Championships in Des Moines. This is the highest the jazz band has ever placed at the Iowa Jazz Championships. Placing in the top eight is very special because only bands in the top eight come home from the Iowa Jazz Championships with trophies.
