Thanks for your auditions!  Decisions weren't easy.  It was great to meet so many new people.

Due to lack of men, our ensemble will be at 12 this year, for balance purposes. So, only a maximum of 7 women could be accommodated.  I'm still looking for two tenors and one bass.  Here are the names of those of you that made it:

Soprano  -  Haley McHardy, Emma Millett, Makenna Noble
Alto  -  Aubrey Lane, Keli Rutledge, JoAnn Yi
Swing  -  Taryn Cantrell
Tenor  -  Corey Baer
Bass  -  Jonathan Bushman, Samuel Loose
Please be in AGA1132 on Monday at 1:00pm.  I will give permission slips to anyone who hasn't auditioned yet, and we will do some balancing and range-checks.
Thanks again for your great voices and musicianship!  Looking forward to a great year of jazz!!!
Marc Denton
Vocal Jazz Director
