On Thursday, February 23, the Southeast Polk High School Bands hosted their own solo and ensemble festival, where nearly 80 solos and ensembles were performed for a select panel of judges. For over 10 years, this event held at the end of February has allowed students to explore musical performance on an individual level. The Southeast Polk Solo and Ensemble Festival uses the same standards and criteria as the Iowa High School Music Association’s State Solo Ensemble Festival held in mid-April each year. This year, there were 42 performances garnering the top rating of “Superior,” 34 students receiving an “Excellent” rating, and three receiving a “Good” rating.
