BOARDMAN - The Boardman High School orchestras recently made history for the school and its orchestra program.

Both the symphony and chamber orchestra ensembles brought home Superior I ratings from the Feb. 24 Ohio Music Education Association State Orchestra Adjudicated Event in Hudson.

The 90-member Boardman Symphony Orchestra has the longest string of unbroken superior ratings, since 1973, of any orchestra in the state of Ohio, according to a recent news release.

Comments from the judges included, "Congratulations on a very fine performance - BRAVO!"

The 30-member Boardman Chamber Orchestra also received a Superior I rating, a rating it has been awarded every time it's performed at state contest for the past 28 years.

The Boardman orchestras will participate in the Invitational National Music Competition in April in Toronto, Canada. Their annual Spring Concert is set for May 17.

The orchestras are under the direction of Michele Prokop, Bill Amendol and Joel Monaco.
