TCS FINE ARTS SOLO & ENSEMBLE NIGHT A SUCCESS!
On Tuesday evening, March 14th, over 140 music students from the middle school and high school, along with parents, teachers and friends, came together for a night of music. The evening ran from 6 pm-9:30 pm. This was the first time all of the Fine Arts Solo and Ensemble critiques were done on the same evening. The spirit of community on a night celebrating our student musicians was well received.
High school band, choir and orchestra students had prepared solos and ensembles in class to be performed for a judge who is a notable expert in their field. Middle school and high school students in private voice and piano study also had the opportunity to prepare pieces outside of class for judge’s critique and comments, as well. Parents and friends were able to gather together and hear students perform and also hear the judge’s critical feedback for improvement.
Refreshments were served for students after their performances and for friends and family to enjoy throughout the night. Judges serving our school were Patricia McMurray (winds and percussion), Taylor Ingro (strings), Joyce Kelstrom (piano) and Diane Marelli (voice). 1st and 2nd place scoring high school students will perform at Thursdays Best of TCHS Assembly 7th period.
