Congratulations to Grade 12 River East Collegiate student Miona Milovanovic who was selected as an Outstanding Soloist for the 24th Annual Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition & Festival. Miona is a violinist. Well done!
River East Collegiate itself has an impressive relationship with Essentially Ellington, which takes place at Lincoln Center in New York City. The REC band has been invited to play at the festival five times since 2003 and is the only Canadian band to ever be invited to the festival.
