Region Solo and Ensemble Contest
February 19, 2016
Mount Vernon Participants
On February 19, A&M Commerce will be hosting the Region Solo and Ensemble contest, in which 14 ensembles and 12 soloists from Mount Vernon will be competing. The participants, students enrolled in the band program, must pick out either a solo or an ensemble (generally a group of 3-8 people) and play it in front of a judge. This contest is held each year in order to showcase small portions and individuals of bands across the state. The students will be accompanied by both band directors and chaperones. Students that earn a ranking of 1 at region will advance to state contest, usually held near Austin, Texas.
