alli lakeimage-1GHS junior Alli Lake (John and Bridget) has been selected for the South Dakota All-State Jazz Band.  This event is held on the Northern State University campus May 2-4.  Students have to undergo an audition of scales and jazz music and are judged by jazz music directors.  Sixty-six South Dakota jazz musicians qualified for this honor with Lake being the only student from a Class B school.  Half the students selected are from Rapid City and Sioux Falls schools.  She is the first student from Gettysburg to ever be selected for All-State Jazz Band and is one of 16 trumpets chosen. Students will work with four professional jazz directors from across the country.  The culminating event will be a jazz concert at the Johnson Fine Arts Theater at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, which is open to the public.
