Kemp Band Students results at Regional Solo and Ensemble competition on Feb 7th

Kemp High School (and one Junior High) band students competed in the UIL regional solo and ensemble competition this past Saturday at Mesquite High School. We had 50 students that participated. The contest is divided up by class. Class 3 entries being the easiest, Class 2 entries are medium difficult and Class 1 entries are the most challenging selections to perform. Students are rated on their performance using the scale of Division 1 through 5 with the Division 1 being the highest/best possible rating.

Here is a list of those that placed and advanced. We are very proud of all those who participated and are very excited that we have 24 of these young musicians advancing to the State Level of competition in May. Congratulations to all of our students for their hard work and success.
