Roosevelt High School trumpet player chosen for all-star band

noahhalpern1Trumpet player Noah Halpern, who graduated from Seattle’s Roosevelt High School in June, has been selected to play in the 2014 edition of the Monterey Jazz Festival’s Next Generation Jazz Orchestra.

Halpern is one of the 21 musicians from six states to make the cut.

As part of the band, Halpern will make a two-week tour of Japan in July and will perform with drummer Eric Harland and singer Michael Feinstein at the Monterey Jazz Festival in September.

Halpern, 18, played for three years in the award-winning Roosevelt band, directed by Scott Brown. In the fall, Halpern will continue his jazz studies at the Juilliard School, in New York.

Started in 1971, the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra is composed of members selected through an application and audition process during the Next Generation Jazz Festival, in the spring.
