LISD Solo & Ensemble

LISD Solo & Ensemble Festival
The annual LISD Solo & Ensemble Festival took place on Saturday, April 9 and we are thrilled to announce that KMSO took home a staggering 42 Solo awards and 11 ensemble awards, for a total medal count of 53.  It takes a certain amount of bravery to perform for a judge and we are so proud to see our young musicians undertake this challenging and exciting experience.  The judges offered encouragement and tips for improvement and rated the performance on a scale from five to one, with a five rating as “Poor” and a one rating as “Superior”.  Medals are awarded for “Excellent” and “Superior” ratings.  Congratulations to all who participated, and special congratulations to our “dual threat” students who participated in the festival and Academic UIL.  Special thanks go out to our East Zone administrators for making sure our students could participate in both.
