Students from area schools will participate in a Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) sanctioned District Solo & Ensemble Music Festival hosted at Sturgeon Bay High School on Feb. 18. During the festival, which is free and open to the public, students will perform vocal and instrumental solos, duets, trios and small ensembles before an adjudicator.
WSMA music festivals annually attract thousands of students from middle, junior high and high schools throughout Wisconsin. The festival will draw students from a number of area schools, including Gibraltar Middle School, Sevastopol Middle School, Sturgeon Bay High School and Thomas J. Walker Middle School. Heidi Hintz, music director at Sturgeon Bay High School, will serve as the festival manager.
“WSMA enjoys a long tradition of providing quality music education experiences to more than 100,000 students annually. Festivals provide students with an opportunity to enrich their musical abilities and understandings as they perform and receive feedback from qualified adjudicators, and as they observe and listen to the performances of their peers,” said WSMA Executive Director Timothy Schaid.
