22 students from Holy Cross participated in the Illinois Grade School Music Association Solo and Small Ensemble Festival held at Coolidge Middle School in Granite City on March 14th.
We had 37 entries (many students performed on several instruments or in several ensembles). At this festival, students perform in front of a judge who then awards a rating and provides helpful comments.
EVERY STUDENT from Holy Cross received either a ‘1’ or ‘1-superior’ rating which is the highest score a judge can give! 17 students performing 22 pieces have qualified for the state level of the festival to be held at Triad Middle School on May 2.
Congratulations to our young musicians!
