District Solo and Ensemble Contest
Several Snyder High School Band students competed at District Solo and Ensemble contest on Saturday, Feb.18th in Lawton. Students who performed solos by memory, are in grades 9-12 and received a superior rating at the district level advance to state which is held in April in Stillwater. Ensembles do not have to play by memory but must receive a superior rating at the district level to advance to state. After competing at District, we came home with 15 superior medals and 2 excellent certificates with 8 students qualifying for state. We are proud of all these students and their dedication to spend many extra hours practicing outside of school hours to achieve their goals. We especially appreciate Dana McElroy always doing an awesome job accompanying the soloists! TGBTG
