BHS Graduate Nationally Recognized

Oscar Suchanek, who graduated from Belmont High School, has been named a semi-finalist in the Thelonius Monk international Jazz Competition.  The award is given to the most outstanding jazz artist in the world under the age of 30 .  Previous winners of this award have gone on to become some of the most prolific musicians of their generation.  For Oscar to even be considered a semi-finalist is an enormous accomplishment.

 Below are links to a New York Times article with more information, as well as the Monk Competition’s official website.
