Ashland High School Junior Jordan Kling is currently the section leader in the French horn section in the AHS Symphonic Band and the principal French hornist in the Youth Symphony of Southern Oregon.




She was accepted into the All-State Honor Band last year for the Oregon Music Educator's Association Convention in Eugene, Oregon, and was accepted into the All-State Honor Orchestra this year for the same convention.




At both conventions, she represented Ashland High School in all rehearsals and in the performance.




In 2006, she won the Southern Oregon Music Educator's Association French Horn category at the annual Winds and Percussion Solo and Ensemble Festival and took seventh place at the OSSA State Solo Music Championships in that category.




This year, she swept the title of French Horn State Champion on April 28 at Lewis and Clark College.




Jordan takes private lessons from Cindy Hutton, Southern Oregon University's director of bands/music education and director of YSSO.
