Band Students Earn High Marks at KMEA 5th District

The Henry County Middle and High School Bands participated in the KMEA 5th District Solo and Ensemble. Solo and Ensemble provides opportunities for students to receive ratings from music instructors for their performances as soloists or in small ensembles. Students receive either Apprentice, Proficient or Distinguished ratings. Henry County band students practiced several weeks on their pieces and it paid off. A majority of the Henry County students who participated received Proficient and Distinguished. Congratulations to them!
