High School Solo and Ensemble Festival


This is a unique experience for students, grades 9 through 12, wanting to perform a solo or ensemble (group) piece and to get feedback on their performance by highly qualified and respected adjudicators.  This is the best way to advance your individual musicianship beyond the classroom.

If you are a student or group interested in performing at Solo and Ensemble this year, please contact Mr. Greenwood as soon as possible to sign up.  The cost is $8 per student and the deadline for signing up is Wednesday, November 29th, 2017.
