Sebs Helling '24 Selected for Metro 8 District Honors Jazz Band
Debbie Higgins

Congratulations to Sebs Helling ’24 for his selection as a member of the Metro 8 District Honors Jazz Band. 

Sebs, who earned the honor for his performance on trumpet, said, “I’ve been playing music my whole life, but I started learning in depth about music in 6th grade. I enjoy music so much because of the flow that I get in when I’m playing. And it sounds cool.”

“Sebastian has impressed me since day one,” said De Smet Jesuit band instructor, Nick Moramarco. “While he excels at the trumpet and has a keen ear and understanding for jazz, he also has an aptitude for classical trumpet playing, and even tries his hand at other instruments including keyboards, saxophone, and bass.  We’re happy to congratulate him on his placement in the District Honors Band!”

Sebs participated in three rehearsals with the band, culminating in a concert on November 20. Bravo, Sebs!
