HAMPDEN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It's a time of celebration for jazz bands in RSU 22. And a historical time, too.
The jazzy sounds of Hampden Academy took home first place in the state jazz festival just a few weekends ago.
The following weekend, the jazz success in RSU 22 continued, as both Reeds Brook and Wagner took home first place prize in their respective divisions during the middle school jazz festival.
It was all part of a record-setting month-- according to Pat Michaud, the director of Bands at Hampden Academy, it's the first time that three schools from the same district all won state titles.
