Orchestra, band Pirates win at ISSMA
The orchestra and band pirates represented us all well at ISSMA district solo and ensemble contest at Munster.
More than 80 orchestra students participated in 48 different events, racking up 35 gold and 14 silver medals from a tough panel of judges.
Forty-four students qualified for state in Indy on Feb. 29, including four soloists: Patience Lyles, Faith Garrett, Soji Oduneye and Trinity Edwards; two trios and five large ensembles.
Twenty-one band students competed in 12 events, earning 10 Gold; one Silver; and one Bronze.
Several of the Gold Medal events are going to State Solo Contest! One of those going to State missed a perfect score by half a point; the other two events earned scores of 10!
