On Friday, May 17, 2019, Clif and Jake Metcalf visited to perform and work with the HS Jazz Band, 5th Grade Band, and the Kindergarten and 1st Grade students. Clif is a senior at Hope College studying business and music and Jake is a senior at Alma High School and is quite the multi-instrumentalist.
