District Solo & Ensemble Contest Sign Up

On March 12 at McNary HS, our singers will have the opportunity to compete in the District Solo & Ensemble Contest.  Below, you will find sign up forms for both contests.  For the Solo Contest, students prepare two solo selections and perform them for a judge and for the Ensemble Contest, students prepare two pieces with a group of other South students.  They will receive some feedback and remarks from the judge on the spot and also receive written feedback later.  Students placing at the top of their division can qualify for the State Solo Contest, April 30 at Pacific University (Forest Grove, OR).  These contests will not cost students money outside of arranging payment with their own accompanist.  Please contact Mr. McLean if you have further questions.
