Dozens of WSD Students Compete at State Solo and Ensemble Music Festival
Congratulations to all of our Wauwatosa School District students who competed, or will compete, at the State Solo and Ensemble Festival through the Wisconsin School Music Association. The state competition is held the last Saturday of April and the first Saturday of May.
Students who advance to the state festival must compete at the advanced level - Class A - and receive a *1 rating.
WSMA Music Festivals have five main goals:
- Improve students’ music performance;
- Increase students’ understanding of music literature and music concepts;
- Motivate students to continue their study of music;
- Establish standards of excellence in music performance;
- Provide opportunities for students to understand the relationship of music experiences to other life experiences.
Below are the students who qualified to compete at the State level.
A special congratulations to the following two students who received Exemplary Performance Awards for their performance at the State Festival:
- Aidan Hogan, Wauwatosa West High School - Violin and Cello
- Henry Lehman Wauwatosa West High School - Music Theater-Tenor/Bass Solo
