2024 District 64 Band/Orchestra Solo & Ensemble Festivals

2024 District 64 Band/Orchestra Solo & Ensemble Festivals

Band and Orchestra students across District 64 showcased their exceptional musical talents at the annual D64 Band and Orchestra Solo & Ensemble Festival. The Band Festival took place on February 13 and the Orchestra Festival took place on March 5. The events were both held at Lincoln Middle School and we had over 350 events with over 400 students participating!

This annual event is a testament to the dedication, passion, and hard work of our budding musicians. It provides a platform for students to challenge themselves, grow as musicians, and celebrate the joy of making music together.

Band and Orchestra participated in a variety of categories, including solo woodwind, brass, percussion, strings, as well mixed ensembles/small groups. The diversity of performances highlighted the range of talent within our musical community.

Our musicians demonstrated not only technical skills but also a deep understanding of the emotional and artistic aspects of their chosen pieces. The adjudicators praised their precision, expression, and musical interpretation, acknowledging the practice/preparation and dedication invested by each participant.

Solo & Ensemble Festival is an opportunity for our students to learn, grow, and build skill. Additionally, the camaraderie forged during rehearsals and the shared love for music created an environment where students felt inspired to push their boundaries and strive for excellence.

“As we celebrate our students' remarkable success, let us also express our gratitude to the families, teachers and community members who have been a constant source of encouragement and support of the instrumental music program,” said Erica Faulhaber, Curriculum Specialist for Instrumental Music. “Your involvement in the musical journey of our students is truly invaluable.”

Once again, congratulations to our talented musicians on their exceptional achievements at the D64 Band and Orchestra Solo & Ensemble Festivals.
