For those of you who have friends in band and wonder where they go this time of year, well your answer is here. The reason they disappear is because they put all their time and effort into making it to state Solo and Ensemble.

This is a competition where musicians can compete as a solo or as a group of about 3-5 who work together. The students get to pick their groups as long as there is music for those instruments to play together.The other choice is to do a solo. The musician must memorize his part in order to make it to State.

Last year the band had 10 soloists advance to State and had 48 people go in their ensembles. This year the band is hoping to send even more.
