- You work for months, sometimes almost a full year to prepare a piece of music. Then, you get one shot in front of one judge on one day to perform it. You are rated in five categories from Tone, Accuracy of notes and rhythms to Expression and Interpretation. Top that off with having to get together with a piano accompanist or 2 to 4 other people for duets, trios, quartets, etc. That is what the G-E-T High School music students have been preparing for. On Feb. 16 and March 11, 85 music students performed in 97 events as part of the District WSMA Solo and Ensemble Contest Festival. If a student performs a Class A solo or ensemble, (these are the most difficult pieces and include major musical works often performed by professionals), they have the opportunity to advance to the State Solo and Ensemble Contest in May. The G-E-T music students earned 11 Firsts and 6 Seconds in Class B, 16 Firsts and 10 Seconds in Class A and have an additional 55 events advancing to the State competition. Congratulations to the G-E-T High School Music students on another great year of participation and achievement in the Wisconsin School Music Association Solo and Ensemble Contest, and good luck to our State qualifiers who will compete on May 4 at Viterbo University. (State qualifiers)
- Congratulations to G-E-T High School Band Senior, Maddie T. for receiving a $3,000.00 scholarship from Hamline. Maddie plans on majoring not in music but in Math with a language minor. That doesn’t mean she has to give up her music. She auditioned for and received a scholarship given to students who are continuing to play their instrument at the college level. All she is required to do is play in the band and the money is hers. It will only require 2 hour long rehearsals a week and 2 concerts during the semester. Congratulations, Maddie.
