Students from John Edwards High School and John Edwards Middle School Music Department participated in the Wisconsin School Music Association Music Festival held in Almond-Bancroft on Feb. 23. WSMA Music Festivals provide students with the opportunity to perform and be evaluated. During the years, the emphasis of these musical events has changed from "contests," where ratings were the most important, to "festivals," which clearly are focused on providing a positive learning experience for students.

"The exciting part about these music festivals is that students are measured against a standard of excellence rather than competing against each other. The festival format allows students at various levels of experience to participate," said Jean Stelchek, John Edwards High/Middle School band director.

Of the students who participated, 3 percent will move on to state for their solos, 56 percent received a first rating for their solos and duets, 37 percent received a second rating, 7 percent received third ratings, and three students received comments only. Of those above, 26 percent were Class A events, 30 percent were Class B events, and 44 percent were Class C events.
