The Ohio Music Education Association Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated event was held last month for high school instrumental and vocal students to perform before an adjudicator and be evaluated on that performance. The students entered in a variety of events from solo performances to large ensembles in three class categories, from "A," or most difficult, to "C" or least difficult, with each event evaluated and awarded a rating. The rating system used is "I" for a superior performance, "II" for an outstanding performance, "III" for an acceptable performance, "IV" for a poor performance, and "V" for a very poor performance.
Canfield High School earned 36 I's and 12 II's. Of the 36 overall superior ratings, Canfield students brought home 55 superior medals. No Canfield solo or ensemble entry earned lower than a "II" or "Outstanding" rating.
