Student musicians prepare to perform for adjudication

Washington County Public Schools will present the 2008 Solo and Ensemble Festival from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at North Hagerstown High School.


Students who have already registered will be adjudicated on their overall performance and musicianship. Instrumental and high school vocalists performing level two music or higher who receive a superior rating will qualify for the state solo and ensemble .

Parents are welcome to attend the festival but cannot be in the room while the adjudication is taking place.

This is not a competition, but a chance for each soloist and ensemble to get feedback and helpful ideas about their performance.
