Our 7th and 8th grade orchestra students attended the Central Methodist Music Festival and performed solos/duets in front of a judge for a rating. Each of the students stayed after school several times to practice, and put in time on their own to learn all of the music performed; very little class time was used for these students to prepare. All students were good citizens throughout the day as well, the judge commented several times about how well-mannered our students were!
The scale used to give ratings is as follows:
Here are the results from the day:
Javier Alex, Viola Solo - 1
Colleen Allen, Violin Solo - 2
Georgie Jackson, Violin Solo - 2
