Algonquin Jazz II, conducted by Mr. Henry Morel received a silver medal for their performance. Algonquin Jazz I, under the direction of Mr. Eric Vincent received a gold medal and an automatic invite to compete at the MAJE State Finals. 

Lead alto sax player, Connor Jenks, received special recognition from the judges. The panel selected Connor as the division I MVP!
