The LMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival is an opportunity for musicians to play a solo or a small ensemble (duet, trio, etc.) for assessment. This event encourages the students to work on their individual musicianship outside of what we are doing as a large band group. They can pick the music they want to play from our solo and ensemble music collection on the website, play for a judge to get specific individual feedback, and possibly win awards!
Students receive a rating of 1 to 5, with 1 or “Superior” being the highest rating. Students receiving a 1 will also be presented with a medal. Having this accolade is a great resume builder. For this event, we will also have awards such as "Most Musical", "Best Flute Performance", and others! Students can be shy about playing a solo, but the experience is invaluable for a musician, so we encourage all students to give it a shot and just have fun with the experience.
The cost is $12.00 per person/per solo or $8.00 per each member of a small ensemble event.
Dates for the 2022-2023 Solo & Ensemble Festival have not yet been set.
