OMEA District 14 Solo and Ensemble Results

OMEA Solo & Ensemble Festival Participants, I’m proud of everyone who took the time and effort to take their music to the next level. Solo & Ensemble is one of the most challenging things we do. The growth that is demonstrated from each musician through the journey helps constitute what we are able to achieve in our larger ensembles. I hope you all grew musically and learned something through the process.

In particular, the mentorship I have the privilege to witness every year as our older students coaching younger students is always heartwarming. Also, the initiative of students to run their own ensembles at a very high level is also very commendable.

I will have adjudicator feedback forms & scores for students on Tuesday.

I’m only posting OSAA Solo & Ensemble State Contest Qualifying results. If you are a District Champion, you automatically qualify to go to the State Contest. If you are an Alternate, you qualify to go to state but will only be scheduled if there is space available.

I will explain in further detail what all of this means in class on Tuesday (lots of numbers and other variables come into play when listing who goes to the next level; only people who the judge recommends move on to state OR earn alternate titles).

Congrats to everyone who earned the adjudicator’s nod to be considered “state contest worthy”.
