Varsity Singers Overall Superior Rating

The Varsity Singers traveled to Granville High School on Saturday, March 3 to perform for OMEA District 10 Large Group Adjudicated Events in Class AA.

They performed three selections for a panel of 3 OMEA adjudicators:
1. *All That Hath Life and Breath Praise Ye the Lord *by Rene Clausen
Kayli Keim, soprano soloist
2. *O Magnum Mysterium *by Tomás Luis Victoria and edited by Shaw/Parker
3. *Great Day *by Warren Martin
Clay Beechy, Michael Yoder, Joey Miller, Nadia Hershberger, soloists

They received two superior ratings and one excellent rating from the three performance adjudicators.

After the performance, Varsity Singers proceeded to the sight reading room to complete the sight reading process of a Class AA SATB example. These sight reading examples are originally composed every year for this event so no has ever heard or seen these pieces before. The sight-reading process includes studying a piece of music for 4 minutes with the director, singing a scale/chords on solfege, singing one time through with piano, receiving comments and feedback from director for one minute, and then singing the piece a second time without piano. Varsity Singers utilized the music literacy system, solfege to sight read for the the very first time this year. They received a superior rating from the sight reading adjudicator.

Varsity Singers received an overall superior rating (1) at OMEA District Large Group Adjudicated Events which qualifies them for OMEA State Large Group Adjudicated Events at Jackson High School the weekend of April 27-28. Specific dates and times for this event will be forthcoming after the registration and scheduling process.
