Sixty-three Grangeville Elementary Middle School seventh and eighth grade musicians traveled twice – Feb. 19 and 20 -- to the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow, once as winners of the 2013 "Clinic" Award, and a second day to perform at the festival. The students were treated to a clinic designed solely for their band with Bob Altheyde from Central California. Altheyde is a middle school instructor and nationally recognized jazz adjudicator. The students are under the direction of Grangeville music teacher Kathy Stefani.
