Wayne Page inducted into the Des Moines Jazz Hall of Fame
“Wayne Page is well known throughout the greater Des Moines area as one of the best musicians around,” said Mark Stallman, principal at Prairieview School. “His ability to teach students how to be outstanding musicians is evident if you’ve had the opportunity to hear a Prairieview band perform. He is a true professional that is worthy of a hall of fame induction.”
Started in 2001, the Des Moines Jazz Hall of Fame was established to honor those musicians who have been proud to call Des Moines (or Central Iowa) home. Musicians selected for the Des Moines Jazz Hall of Fame have not only influenced future generations of musicians, but have provided the city’s jazz fans with years of musical adventure and enjoyment.
Page will be inducted in September surrounded by Des Moines’ jazz fans to celebrate the contributions of many talented and dedicated individuals. Congratulations Mr. Page!
