55 Kemp High School Band Students competed in the Region 3 Solo and Ensemble Competition this past Saturday at Mesquite High School. Student seither performed an individual solo or was a member of a small group of similar instruments. Some competed in both categories as well.
The students perform their music for one judge who then gives that performance a rating. The rating score ranges from Division 1, which is the highest score you can achieve, down through Division 5. Each solo or ensemble is classified into 3 groups. Class 1 is the most difficult, Class 2 is of a medium range and Class 3 is on an easier level.
Here is the list of students that earned a Division 1 rating from their judges…
Class 3 solo Division 1 winners
Class 2 solo Division 1 winners
Deisy Galindo Soto-Flute
Marcus Aguilar-French Horn
Matt Floyd-French Horn
Class 1 solo Division 1 winners
This next group of students received a Division 1 on their Class 1 solo or ensemble and will be advancing to the STATE SOLO AND ENSEMBLE COMPETITION IN MAY!
