Solo & Ensemble Contest...
Solo & Ensemble Contest
The Solo and Ensemble Contest (SEC) is open to all band levels including Cadets. This annual event is generally held in the latter part of March. The SEC is not a competition between band members. Each soloist or ensemble is judged on their personal performance that day with level of experience taken into consideration. Whether an individual event is open or closed to observers is up to the participant or ensemble members.

WHAT IS THE SEC (Solo and Ensemble Contest)
Our annual Solo and Ensemble Contest is an exciting and much anticipated musical event held on a Saturday, generally in February or March. ALL band members, Cadet through Symphonic, are encouraged to participate in the SEC. Students have the opportunity to prepare solos and/or ensembles of their choice and perform them for a judge who then rates their performance. There is no competition, rather; students strive for their personal best. Judges decisions are final.
