Glenwood City hosts 2013 Solo & Ensemble Festival March 12

Glenwood City hosted a Solo & Ensemble Festival on Tuesday, March 12th.  Schools participating were: Spring Valley, Boyceville, Colfax, Menomonie, and Glenwood City.

The primary purposes of WSMA festivals are to:

• Establish standards of quality for music literature.

• Motivate students to prepare and perform to the best of their abilities.

• Improve students’ understanding of music literature and music concepts (performance with understanding).

• Provide opportunities for performance of original student compositions.

• Support improvement of school music programs through individual and group achievement.

• Encourage exploration of diverse musical styles and ensemble combinations.

The Wisconsin School Music Association uses the following guidelines for criteria checkmarks:

*I & I – Excellent (consistently outstanding)

II – Very Good (very good performance with only minor shortcomings)

III – Good (demonstrating accomplishment but lacking several essential qualities)

IV – Fair (numerous weaknesses and/or errors)

V – Poor (lacking in fundamental aspects of performance, understanding, or preparation)

Note: Students with an asterisk are advancing to the state competition.
