The Wind Ensemble earned Straight 1’s and all A’s for a perfect Superior 1st Division Rating. The Symphony Band also earned a Superior 1st Division Rating and the Concert Band earned an Excellent 2nd Division Rating. Each of the bands qualified for the State Festival back in March by earning a Superior 1st Division Rating at the District Festival. Bands are expected to perform to a higher standard and must sight-read a more difficult piece of music at the State Festival.

Congratulations to all three bands and Mr. David A. Uhrig, Director of Bands, on their outstanding performances.
