Congratulations to cellist, Maddie Slack ’16 and oboist, Hailey Cayne ’13, who both received Superior ratings at the Maryland State Solo Festival. In order to qualify for the Maryland State Solo Festival, students must receive the highest rating at the Montgomery County Solo Festival, which took place this past March.
For both the County and State Solo Festivals, students prepared a solo piece—to be performed with piano accompaniment—and scales. Each student played her piece as well as a chromatic scale and a scale chosen by the adjudicator. Musicians are graded on technical accuracy, musicality, presentation, and style.
Please congratulate Maddie and Hailey for their initiative and for their outstanding achievement!
