Berklee High School Jazz Festival

FAME was selected to present its FAME Jazz Band Program (FJBP), composed of Prince George’s County musicians, to perform at the Berklee High School Jazz Festival, under the direction of Dr. Clarence Knight, Jr.   This Berklee College of Music event is the largest of its kind in the United States and held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts.  Our students served as Youth Ambassadors for Prince George’s County and the State of Maryland, participated in workshops and clinics conducted by educators and recording artists, toured Berklee’s campus, met with faculty, networked with national musicians, and much more. The band’s performance received a superior evaluation and Langston Hughes received the top soloist award again this year.
