(IOWA CITY, Iowa) – The Eddyville Blakesburg Fremont (EBF) High School Jazz band was hard at work on Saturday competing in class 2A at the South East Iowa Bandmasters Association District Jazz Contest. The fruits of their labor paid off when they came home with a second-place finish just behind Mid-Prairie High School, qualifying them for the Iowa Jazz Championships at Iowa State University on April 5.
Only the first and second place finishers from the South East Iowa Bandmasters Districts were eligible to go on to the Iowa Jazz Championships. Outstandingly, this is the 32nd year in a row that the band has qualified for championships.

(Fairfield, Iowa) – On Saturday, January 6, approximately 800 students from Southeast Iowa arrived at Fairfield High School in hopes of being accepted to attend the SEIBA Honor Band Festival. Each year, the Southeast Iowa Bandmasters Association sponsors the auditions in Fairfield. This year, there were 28 audition centers, with approximately 400 students auditioning for two junior high bands; over 300 students auditioning for the high school concert band; and about 50 students auditioning for the high school jazz band.
Delanee Van Zante of EBF High School was selected to participate in the SEIBA HS Honor band. High school students prepare two assigned etudes, chromatic and all major scales, and a solo excerpt of their choice. Competition is tough, as a small percentage of the students auditioning are accepted.
“All of the students from EBF that auditioned did an excellent job, demonstrated a commitment to music, and did an outstanding job of representing our school and communities,” said Joe Overton, EBF Band Director, in a news release.
The SEIBA Honor Band Concert will be held at Iowa City West High School on Saturday, January 27, 2018. The students will rehearse with guest conductors during the afternoon and give an evening concert. The junior high bands will present their concert at 5:00 PM followed by the high school bands at 6:00 PM.
