Six students at Janitell Junior High have earned their way into the Pinnacle Jazz group with the Colorado Springs Youth Orchestra program. These young musicians competed against students all over Colorado Springs to participate in an extra-curricular honor jazz band after school. They all worked hard independently to practice for their audition so that they could make this group. The students pictured are: George Trujillo (trombone), Brooklynn Hagedorn (alto sax), Tristan Biber (piano), Jakob Loudermilk (bari sax), Michael Lebo (tenor sax), and Brodie Montmeny (trumpet).
