In this past week, students in the Davis high choir program were given the great opportunity to participate in solo and ensemble.  Students were required to choose and prepare a solo, piano solo, or choral ensemble and perform it in front of an adjudicator. They were judged and given a rating. Their given rating determines whether they have achieved the overall goal; moving on to the region festival.

Moving on to region is a major achievement. Only a select few duets, solos, and ensembles are chosen to move on. Students are adjudicated based on the following categories: Intonation, Tone Quality, Factors for Musicality such as phrasing and dynamics, and how well they perform the song (how they act and if they are well prepared). Students prepare a song in the ‘classical genre”. (Music from the 1600’s to the 1900’s.)
