Music Contest Winners

Congratulations to East CLC Musicians
Posted on 03/26/2019
Congratulations! to our student musicians. Nine Akron Public Schools ensembles performed at the Ohio Music Educator's Association Large Group Contest.  The nine ensembles include five bands, three choirs, and one orchestra marking the largest number of ensembles APS has sent to contest in recent history. Six ensembles received superior ratings for their performances. Bands and choirs that receive superior ratings are invited to perform in the State Large Group Contest in May.  

Large Group Contest consists of an adjudicated performance of three selections in varying styles and sight reading of a newly composed piece.  The sight reading component allows students only four minutes to become familiar with the composition before performing in front of an adjudicator.  Ensembles and their directors use the comments provided by the adjudicators to improve both as individual players and as an ensemble.  

Ensembles include: 
East CLC Concert Band - Festival Class 
Ellet High School Symphonic Band - Superior
Ellet High School Concert Band - Excellent
Firestone CLC Men's Ensemble - Superior
Firestone CLC Orchestra - Superior 
Firestone CLC Symphonic Band - Superior
Firestone CLC Symphonic Choir - Superior
Firestone CLC Women's Ensemble - Superior
Firestone CLC Concert Band - Good
