SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ – The Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School Moonglowers won first place at the New Jersey Association for Jazz Education (NJAJE)'s 2014 Division II state finals at Princeton High School on April 26.  The Moonglowers, New Jersey's oldest school jazz band, are now 12-time state finals champions.

In the preliminary round held in March, the Moonglowers scored the third highest overall and had the highest score of all bands in their division, which earned them the right to perform last at the state finals. The top nine scores in each of the three divisions were selected to move onto the state finals. Divisions were selected based on school size and population.  In addition to winning the state finals, the school’s jazz band won all six competitions this year.

“It was the hard work and dedication of the Moonglowers that achieved their success throughout the year,” said Vincent Turturiello, director of the group and SPFHS supervisor of fine arts.

SPFHS has a wide variety of student musical groups, including four jazz bands, concert and marching bands and other instrumental ensembles, concert and chamber choirs and several select vocal groups.

The NJAJE provides performance opportunities to the music students of New Jersey through the sponsorship of various festivals and Honor Ensembles in effort to advance Jazz education and promote Jazz performances across all levels of the state’s educational system.
