Twenty-nine members of the Canfield Village Middle School band program and 15 members of the Canfield Village Middle School choral music program participated in 55 events at the annual Ohio Music Education Association District 5 Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event on March 30.
This year’s event took place at Struthers High School.
The OMEA Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event is an opportunity for middle school instrumental and vocal students to perform before an adjudicator and be evaluated on that performance. The students enter in a variety of events from solo performances to large ensembles.
Each event is evaluated and awarded a rating. The rating system used is “I” for a superior performance, “II” for an outstanding performance, “III” for an acceptable performance, “IV” for a poor performance and “V” for a very poor performance.
Canfield Village Middle School band students earned 37 superior and three outstanding ratings, while choral music students earned 12 superior and three outstanding ratings.
Soloists receiving a “I” for their superior musical achievement included Grace Min, Gabriella Smallwood, Matthew Miller, Michael Weaver, Jackson Linko, Julia Stratton, Ryan Lamb, Aidan Fay, Harjote Kaur, Wesley Rich, Anna Kerns, Emily Heino, Tanya Pai Dhungat, Evin Tura, Dev Sethi, Malia Swartz, Harrison Miller, Giovanna Cestone, Madison Edwards, Quinton Miller, Benjamin Marenkovic, Aiden Terziu, Irene Dong, Anthony Mordocco, Natalee Balestra, Hannah Brose, Sophia Cianciola, Timmy Domer, Aubrey Dredge, Madelyn Gordon, Addison Hanousek, Simon Kovass, Ryan Lamb, Lilia Rappach, Elizabeth Reed and Brianna Wenowitz-Fishel.
