JAG Performers Earn 12 Superior Ratings at Solo & Ensemble Event

Mantua - This past Saturday Crestwood High School hosted the Ohio Music Education Association District Six High School Solo & Ensemble Adjudicated Event. Students from 32 area schools participated in the event.  The event covered vocals as well as instrumentals, including brass, woodwinds, stringed and percussion instruments.

James A. Garfield (JAG) School had 18 entries in the contest. Students are judged on how well they performed their chosen piece of music. The judges scored each performance with a I, II, III, IV or V, with I being a superior performance. JAG music students did very well this weekend and once again made our school proud.

The brass quintet and a drum solo started the day off on a great note for JAG musicians setting the bar high for those who followed. The first three performers including the lone vocalist Megan Ryser earned superior ratings. The ensembles continued to rise to the occasion and at the end of the day JAG students  earned 12 superior ratings, four excellent and two good ratings.

Congratulations to the following performers who participated in the Solo and Ensemble Contest.
