Orchestra Successes at Solo and Ensemble

I have some great news to report. This past weekend, students from orchestra competed at our annual District Solo and Ensemble Contest. All students were required to learn a solo, and our symphonic students were also required to learn an ensemble. Students chose whether or not they wished to take their performances to contest. So, the first part of the good news, Stafford had a record number of students choosing to take their performances to contest! This is actually a huge step for the students, as they have to push themselves on these difficult performances.

The most fun news to report however, between all solos and ensembles, Stafford received 9 “Excellent” ratings, as well as 42 “Superior” ratings.

I am very proud of the students and all of their hard work.
