CLARK, NJ - Harmony and composition filled the air recently at Arthur L. Johnson High School as the Music Parent Association hosted a weekend of music with the Tournament Indoor Association (TIA) Jazz Band Competition.
The participants included Jazz Bands from ALJ, Metuchen Weehawken, Carteret and Manville High Schools. The ALJ Jazz Band scored a Silver rating with the best solos award in the A class level.
On the Sunday morning of the weekend event ALJ MPA volunteers arrived early to set up for the TIA, Chapter 10 Indoor Color Guard and Indoor Percussion 2018 Championships. Thirteen groups participated.
The ALJ Indoor Percussion won the Chapter 10 Championship in Stationary Percussion A. One parent from North Brunswick Township expressed how much she loves coming to ALJ for these types of activities because of the great job the volunteers of the ALJ MPA do.
Parents were not the only ones who enjoyed the event. “It was a great experience seeing so many amazing groups perform at ALJ this weekend,” said Bobby, an ALJ senior who participated in both the Jazz Band Competition and Indoor Percussion.
