They may have been up against suburban music programs with deeper pockets, but Skyline’s jazz band took second place at the Reno Jazz Festival the weekend before last.
Ted Allen, the band director, said Skyline was the only urban school in its division — 16 teams from California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. This is the second year in a row that the group has won second.
Allen, who reads this blog regularly, urged me to share this “real news” about OUSD happenings. How can I argue with that?
