Independence Middle School Students Excel at Ohio Music Educators Association Contest
The Ohio Music Educators Association Solo and Ensemble Contest is a contest in which young musicians perform art songs for ratings based on pitch, intonation, balance, interpretation, tone quality and accuracy. It is a terrific opportunity for IHS students to work on their small group and individual musicianship and receive invaluable comments from a variety of adjudicators! The discipline learned through this experience is something that serves the students as they grow musically. Performances are rated on a scale of I - V, with I being the highest. Performances are separated by Class, A - C, with A being the most challenging.
