Solo & Ensemble contest will be held VIRTUALLY this year. Having adjudicated a similar festival this fall, I am extremely pleased with how smoothly our state music association (ISSMA) has handled the logistics in providing this important performance opportunity for our students. Students will produce a video and submit their recorded performance with PDF music scores with my assistance. Assigned judges will provide the feedback through their written commentary and ratings as they normally would in-person. The deadline for entry and fee is January 27th, so please be planning to take advantage of this opportunity! I will be handing out more information in class.
