January 9 update: Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event

Please continue to work on your solos and ensembles on your own. If interested in after school help, please see a director. Entries fees for S&E will again be paid by the band boosters. Most solos require a piano accompaniment at AE. Students will be responsible for acquiring their own accompanist. We do have several people who are willing to accompany for $35 which will include two rehearsals and the performance the day of contest.
