ADM's vocal jazz group, Amp, was accepted to participate in the Iowa Vocal Jazz Championships at Ballard High School on April 1st. Schools from around the state submit video recordings to be judged for acceptance, and only a select number of schools are asked to participate in the competition.

ADM has never had a jazz choir make championships, and we are very excited to represent ADM in April. Amp members include: Erica Paige, Bryce Lord, Amanda Seiler, Kyle Hovey, Alex Hall, Chelsea May, Madalyn Walker, Devon Lord, Jonathan Norris, LewElla Riker, Hannah Button, and Kolby Whisner.
