MHS students performed at UW Platteville on Saturday, April 27, 2018, in the State Solo/Ensemble Festival. Congratulations to each of the performers on their dedication to practice and their excellence in musicianship.
10 MHS students were recognized with the WSMA Exemplary Performance Recognition Award for their solos and 16 additional MHS student soloists were nominated for this award. WSMA also gave Exemplary Performance Recognition Awards to ensembles. One MHS ensemble received a WSMA Exemplary Performance Recognition Award and five additional ensembles were nominated for this award.
Throughout the festival day, adjudicators have an opportunity to nominate performers whose performance was truly exceptional– beyond what is typically expected for this age group. At the end of the day, each adjudicator selects up to two of the most exceptional performances to receive the Exemplary Performance Recognition Award from among those nominated.
Special congratulations to these MHS students earning a 2018 Exemplary Performance Recognition Award:
Emma Kostecki, Abby Mangas, Grace Madigan, Ella Hursh
...and congratulations also to these MHS students who were nominated:
