Soli Deo Gloria competed on Friday and Saturday, April 15-16, at the 41st Pleasant Hill Jazz Festival and left as champions yet again.

A few highlights from Choral Director Mr. Fox:

Horrific motel experience (no rollaways, 1 room not cleaned, another room infested with fleas), fun breakfast, pictures on a playground, epic Dairy Queen, fabulous performances in the elimination and finals round, and overwhelming comments from our adjudicators about the level of Soli’s performance. There were jokes, laughter, and a servant’s attitude throughout from these amazing teens who are the only group (Westside’s Soli the past three years) in the 30 year history of PHJF to ever stay and help clean up everything that goes into a jazz festival of this scope. A McDonalds run at midnight and the weary, but satisfying drive home…it was a fabulous time with these students and three amazing chaperones that I love!!!

It was a perfect weekend!
