MHS Band earns distinctions at UIL Solo & Ensemble contest

Members of the Manor High School band competed on Saturday, February 18th at the Region 26 Solo and Ensemble Contest. This event features soloists performing age level to college level literature with a piano accompaniment as well as chamber music of various types for a judge. The judge scores the performance by giving a rating on a scale of one to five. A one or "first division" means that the performance was rated as superior and warrants the highest medal of achievement. Soloists who memorized their solo or ensembles who played their piece from the advanced music list and received a superior rating, advance to the state solo and ensemble competition in May where they will compete with hundreds of superior level musicians from across the state. 

Manor HS is proud to announce that the school brought home 41 first division medals and of those, 20 students have advanced to the state solo and ensemble contest. The following students have earned the distinction of earning a first division medal at the contest and are dually noted for those who have advanced to state.
