On Thursday, March 27th we'll be performing at the District Festival hosted at Whitney High School. Concert Band performs at 5 p.m. and Wind Ensemble performs at 8 p.m.
On Friday, March 28th we'll be participating in the SCSBOA Festival hosted at Bellflower High School. Our Concert Band performs at 8 p.m.
Judges, who are specialists in their respective fields, are hired to make constructive comments and criticism using official adjudication forms. No one is a winner; there is no “first place.” Ratings are given, including Superior, Excellent, Good, Fair, and Poor. The rating standards are set by experienced music educators; however, the rating received is not as important as the learning process that has preceded the performance.
This is be the first time that these students will be participating in an SCSBOA adjudicated festival. This is also the first time in many years that Gahr High School has two bands.
Both festivals are free and open to the public. You are cordially invited to share with us the intellectual, aesthetic, and social growth gained through musical performance! If you are planning on coming, arrive at least 15 minutes early because they will close the doors in between performances.
