Solo & Ensemble Schedule

Solo and Ensemble contest will be held at Massillon High School on Saturday, January 29th.  Due to Covid, there are a few changes for this year:

  1.  Masks must be worn at all times while in the building (except when you are performing)
  2. Only your parents, accompanists, and yourself may enter the room in which you are performing.
  3. Plan to arrive with enough time to warm up and be prepared for your performance (30 minutes should be good).  You may warm up in room A213
  4. Dress professionally and be courteous to your adjudicator!  They want you to be successful!
  5. Remember that you represent the Perry Bands at all times.  Act with class!

There are some things you need to do on your end:

  2. Fees are $18 for each event.  Please make checks payable to Perry Band Boosters.
  3. Contact an accompanist ASAP and meet with them before January 29th. (a few times!)  Your private lesson teacher will most likely suggest an accompanist, but we also have a list on perryband.com under Lessons/Accompanists
