Flyers earn a division I rating -- qualify for state!
Congratulations, musicians! Your hard work has paid off. Not only did both bands earn Division I ratings, but ALL three judges gave you scores that were in the Division I range. We will review the score sheets and recordings next week to see where we can improve even more. I think this is only the second time in 13 years that Symphonic Band has earned a Divsion I Rating. I am so proud of each one of you.
Due to our scores, both SB and WE have earned a trip to IGSMA STATE FESTIVAL!
All Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble musicians and families need to mark their calendars for IGSMA STATE FESTIVAL! Location and exact date/time will be announced. It will be Saturday, April 23. We will know our schedule after spring break.
