Junior High and Freshmen Bands to Contest
The 7th Grade Band, 8th Grade Band, and Freshmen Band are all headed to the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) Large Group Adjudicated Event on Saturday, May 12. This event, also known as "contest" will be held at North Canton Hoover High School. At Contest, each band performs three pieces of music that they have prepared for this event. That performance is followed by one piece of music that the band (and the directors) are seeing for the first time - called "sight reading".
OMEA Contest is free and open to the public. OMEA regulations prohibit the use of ANY recording device - audio or video - cellphones included.
The bands will be performing at these times:
7th Grade Band - 12:15pm
8th Grade Band - 1:15pm
Freshmen Band - 2:15pm
