Congratulations to the following musicians on their Excellent and Superior ratings at the OMEA District 13 Solo and Ensemble Contest at Lakota West High School on January 20, 2018.  Each were judged by a professional musician/music educator on such criteria as tone, intonation, interpretation, and technique.  The students then earned a rating from I to V, with a I being Superior, a II Excellent, a III Good, a IV Poor and a V Very Poor.  This year we had 16 participants, who had to prepare music in a shorter amount of time, also contending with snow days at the beginning of the semester!
