Avon Musicians Earn Awards at ISSMA Contest

Avon Musicians Earn Awards at ISSMA Contest

by Kyle Miller

On January 27 and February 3, Avon Schools hosted the Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) Solo & Ensemble contest. This competition allows students to perform a solo or in a group for a judge and to get feedback on their performance. 

Across grades 6-12, 653 students participated in these events over the two days, which is a record for Avon! We're thrilled to report that 385 students achieved "Gold" rating for superior performances and 33 received "Silver" rating for a good performance.

There will be 62 students participating in State Solo & Ensemble this year. These students performed a piece of music in the Group 1 category which is the most difficult music.

Congratulations to all of our Oriole musicians!
