Senior Band at the Kiwanis Festival

In Education on May 30, 2017 at 9:06 am

On May 25th the Senior band played at the Kiwanis festival and were incredibly expressive and musically mature. They placed in the Gold category. Here are some of the adjudicators comments:

Tone, rich full and resonant in all sections

Balance and blend, Amazingly good

Intonation, very good

Rhythm, very good

Dynamics, terrific contrasts

Musicianship, gorgeous phrasing

Interpretation, Notes lifting off the page

Repertoire, Excellent

General adjudicators Comments; This is an aural delight!

There were many suggestions on the next step for this band but the general tone of the comments were very impressive. I would like to thank our very dedicated group of parents, many of whom have been chaperones on our trips as they helped us move many of the larger instruments to and from the Festival. To the students I am so very proud, grateful, and privileged to lead this group.

We hope to see everybody at our Year end concert on Thursday June 15th at 7:00 p.m.
