JHS Musicians Give Astounding Performance

To the Reader’s Forum:

Last evening at the Arthur Grandson bandshell in Allen Park, I was privileged and very pleased to watch and listen to the Jamestown High School Concert Band. The director, Megan Murray has continued the excellence started by the creator of the high school band, Arthur Goranson in the early 1920’s. I was also privileged to play in the band under his direction for two years before his retirement. We were good, but not as good as the band in recent years.

Last night, the band played some very difficult music flawlessly. These young people are very accomplished musicians. I would say most semi-professional. They are to be congratulated, as are their parents for the support they give.
