On January 28, High School band members participated in MSBOA District Solo & Ensemble, held at Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor. Fifteen students participated in the event and each represented Plymouth Christian Academy dignity, class, and grace.

The following are the results of our Middle School and High School Band members from this year’s District XII Solo & Ensemble Festivals.

Students are assessed on their tone, intonation, technique, rhythm, and musical interpretation. Afterwards, the adjudicator rates the student(s) I-V (highest-lowest). Our band members represented PCA well:

    7% of the events rated at a III
    48% of the events rated at a II
    45% of the events rated at a I
