"For The Dreamers..." Solo Competition
"Have you ever dreamed a dream?"
The "For The Dreamers..." Solo Competition is designed for all members of the ensemble to participate for an opportunity to be the featured soloist on stage at the Spring Concert, accompanied by an ensemble from the band program. On average, over half of the band program has participated each year in 16 different musical instrument categories, ranging from traditional concert instruments, to violin, vibraphone, upright bass, timpani, and vocal.
The competition allows for all player abilities and grade levels to compete among each other, while receiving individualized feedback along the duration of the competition. Students have seen growth in their musical abilities and self-confidence, beyond the competition, by participating and learning throughout.
