Sherwood Band Soloists are Awesome!

Congrats to all who took the stage yesterday to perform at the OMEA District 14 Solo & Ensemble Festival yesterday. We had 42 entries and I was blown away by the incredible amount of preparation & musicality displayed by all. Mr. Stai is very proud of you all!

Furthermore, Huge Congratulations are in order to the following students who performed and received marks that were State Solo Competition Worthy. Some of these members will go on to compete in the OSAA State Solo Contest, Some have qualified as alternates, and Some were given the distinction of performing at the State Contest level of quality but will not be selected to perform.
