The students will prepare their solo or ensemble music, and receive a rating from a qualified music education professional based on a set of predetermined scoring parameters. Awards are given for students achieving scores at the Excellent and Superior rating levels. Special recognition is also given to those “Top 10” performers for the day. An added goal for the contest events is to increase student listening and analyzing of music performances. Please see the Workshops page for a further explanation of the 2017 workshop opportunities.
