Among others, Summit students Jack Hollenbeck, left, Tarek Hasan, middle, and David Schnitter, right, all earned superior ratings from the OMEA at the Solo and Ensemble Event.

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.
