Jazz Guitarist Named To All-State Band

December 16, 2005 – A Collin County Community College District (Collin) jazz student was one of three named to the Texas All-State Community College Jazz Band.

Dallas resident Juan Moreno, 46, joined Young Heo and Jordan Goldblatt, in the band that is slated to perform at the Texas Music Educators Association Convention in San Antonio in February.

Moreno had played guitar for about 24 years, but until coming to Collin three years ago, he did not have any formal training. He plans to finish an associate of applied science in commercial music in the spring.

“It was a surprise and exciting because I never knew it was possible,” Moreno said of being named to the all-state band.

Collin County Community College District (Collin) serves more than 40,000 credit and continuing education students annually and offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs. The only public college in the county, Collin is a partner to business, government and industry, providing customized training and work force development.
