On Deck with Michail Thompson
Michail Thompson is 16 years old. He’s the principal trumpet player in the Portland Youth Philharmonic, he plays jazz at the Alan Jones Academy of Music, and is the band president at Grant High School. In his role as band president, Michail hopes to find a way to make the Grant student body realize that going to a band concert is as cool as going to a football game.
