MS Orchestra Earns Superior Ranking at High Note Festival
The Ranney Middle School Orchestra earned Superior ranking at the High Note Festival on Friday, May 5.
At High Note Festivals, groups are judged on how they play, helping students strive to continue to improve. By presenting a well-rehearsed concise program, each group has the opportunity to receive the highest rating of superior. The adjudicators listen for the execution of skills and techniques like breath control, intonation, phrasing, dynamics, attacks, releases, diction, balance, tone, posture, attentiveness to the director, concert etiquette, etc. The group’s performances are evaluated, and the school is provided you with written and audio commentary along with a numerical rating.
After the scheduled performance is complete, the students are free to enjoy an afternoon of fun at Six Flags Great Adventure.
