The Shepherdstown Rotary Club has donated $250 to the Shepherdstown Middle School Band Program.

The funds will be used to support music clinics for students participating in the School’s award-winning Jazz Band.

These clinics, which are held monthly during the school year, bring professional jazz musicians and outside music teachers to the school to provide expert instruction in jazz technique, style, tone, rhythm and interpretation.

This helps the Jazz Band to maintain a high standard of excellence.

The band frequently wins high honors in competitions.

The Rotary Club presented its donation to Jazz Band members at the Middle School on Aug. 30.
