Deer Park Junior High Band Members Excel at OMEA D14 Music Contest
On Saturday, April 18, nine of Deer Park Junior High School’s best musicians traveled to Madeira Middle School to participate in the 2015 Ohio Music Education Association’s local Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event. A music recital was also held a few days earlier at the HS in preparation for contest, with additional students participating.
Over 500 students from across the Greater Cincinnati area compete in this annual event, where many music students gain experience as an instrumental/vocal soloist for the first time in their careers as school musicians.
Receiving #1-Superior ratings were Tyler Wiley (clarinet), Trent Braun (alto sax), Dillon Fischer (alto sax), and the 8th grade trumpet trio of Cody Benjamin, Thomas Meza, and Logan Nester.
Receiving #2-Excellent and #3-Good ratings were Seth Tindle (clarinet), Casey Mason (clarinet), Thomas Meza (trumpet), and Morgan Mattstedt (snare drum).
Congratulations to all of these fine young musician and a big “thank you” to the families and friends who provided support and encouragement along the way!
It is a great day to be a Wildcat!
