Shorewood Students Advance to State Solo & Ensemble

On Saturday, March 15, 2014, SIS and SHS music students participated in the Wisconsin School Music Association Solo and Ensemble Festival at Shorewood.  A total of 250 band, choir and orchestra students from SIS and SHS performed in 209 events, including solos, duets, trios, quartets, and larger ensembles.  Musicians who received a 1* rating in Class A (the most advanced repertoire) will perform at the State Solo and Ensemble Festival in April.  A total of 84 events from SIS and SHS qualified for State!  Congratulations to all the music students who prepared and performed on Saturday. (See a complete list of students who will advance below.)

Hosting the event this year was a huge undertaking, and the success of the event would not have been possible without a tremendous amount of help from staff and volunteers.  Thank you to all the SIS and SHS staff who opened their classrooms for use this weekend, thank you to Barb Marr and food service personnel for help with concessions, and thanks to the school custodial staff for helping prepare our schools for the event and then clean up Saturday night.  Several local businesses donated food items for our hospitality rooms—thank you to Colectivo Coffee, Pick n’Save, Einstein Bagels, and Breadsmith on Downer.

Finally, a huge thank you to the over 200 parent and community volunteers who worked Saturday at information tables, in hospitality rooms, in concessions, and at all the performance sites as door monitors and room chairs.  The music staff received so many compliments on the friendliness and helpfulness of the volunteers.  Shorewood was well represented to over 2,000 visitors from the North Shore area, THANK YOU!
