F.B.A. Solo & Ensemble Festival

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE IMS BAND STUDENTS WHO PERFORMED AT THE F.B.A. SOLO AND ENSEMBLE FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND!

 
Our students earned 160 SUPERIOR RATINGS  and many EXCELLENT RATINGS! No one earned anything less than an EXCELLENT rating! WOW! 
(Ratings are: SUPERIOR EXCELLENT GOOD FAIR OR POOR) 
 
Our students were generally well-prepared, polite, and professional in their manners and appearance. Thank you to all our parents for driving, supporting,
encouraging practice, and spending time with your young musicians. Soloists were given their judges’ sheets to read and keep today!! The ensembles all passed their sheets around so each member could read their comments. The ensemble leader keeps the sheet. All the students that earned a compliment from the judge for their DYNAMICS (piano, forte, crescendos, etc) 
were given a special treat today. All students earning Superior and Excellent Ratings will also be awarded a MEDAL at the end of the year!
