Numerous Summit Middle School band members impressed adjudicators from the Ohio Music Education Association at the Solo and Ensemble Event in April.
Logan Miller, Ft. Thomas; Nicholas Stanis, Delhi; Sam Parker, Loveland; Jude Gerhardt, Colerain Township; Tarek Hasan, Hyde Park and David Schnitter, Clermont County’s Union Township, all earned a superior rating.
A superior rating requires, among other criterion, “an outstanding performance.”
In addition, several Summit Chamber Ensembles also earned the superior rating: the clarinet trio of David, Max Jambor, Hyde Park, and Jude; the trumpet trio of Jack Hollenbeck, Mason, Sam and Logan; and the woodwind ensemble of Ali Burns, Anderson Township; Shannon Dennemann, Norwood; Maria Bishop, Mason; and Lyla Soper, Covington.
The brass trio of Tarek, Nick Carle, Kenwood; and Kyle Lauckner, Mt. Carmel, fell just short of the top mark but still turned in a performance that showed accomplishment and great promise said Robert Browning, the Director of Instrumental Music.
