We Came, We Saw, We Conquered!!
Congratulations to the Fairfield High School music students for their awesome musical performances last Friday night, May 6. Fairfield had its most successful Large Group Music Contest experience ever last Friday when we sent almost 220 students to Fort Madison High School to perform. Fairfield Concert Band, Men's Choir, Women's Choir and Chamber Choir all came home with Division I Superior ratings. All three judges in each category gave straight I's to these groups. Some of the comments on the written judges' ballots were:
"Wonderful sound ladies"
"Emotional involvement was wonderful"
"Excellent work, excellent literature"
"A very well-disciplined group"
"Lots of great singing going on"
Directors for the ensembles are: Freshman Band - Mr. Adam, Concert Band - Mr. Edgeton, Men's Choir and Chamber Choir - Mr. Reiter, Women's Choir - Mrs. Keller. The contest is under the auspices of the Iowa High School Music Association.
Thank you to the students for their time and commitment to excellence!
