Adam Ward, BHS Trumpeter


Bay High School trumpet player Adam Ward was again selected for the Ohio Music Education Association’s All-State Jazz Ensemble. Ward, a high school senior, auditioned alongside top high school musicians from all over the state. (Ward was also selected in 2021 as a junior.)

This year’s All-State Jazz Ensemble will rehearse in January, and then play a concert at the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) Convention, which takes place in Columbus this year, from February 2-4, 2023.

“Only five trumpet players were selected for this throughout the state, so this is exciting,” said Darren Allen, Bay High School Band Director.
