Participation in the solo festival was entirely optional. Learning their solos, attending the extra rehearsals, and performing in front of a judge and audience in itself was going above and beyond the requirements of being in band class. I commend all students on their talent, newly acquired skills, and the bravery involved in these accomplishments!
