OHS Choir, Band Students State Bound

Nearly 50 Ozark High School choir and band students will perform at state competition in April, after receiving “exemplary” ratings at the MSHSAA Music Festival March 9 at Clever High School.

Out of the 96 solo and ensemble entries students performed at the district competition, more than half qualified for state.

In choir, there were a total of 42 entries. Out of those, 22 performances received “exemplary” ratings; 13 received “outstanding” ratings; and seven received “satisfactory” ratings. In addition, three students performed piano solos that received “exemplary” ratings.

The OHS band had 54 entries in the district competition. Out of those, 28 received “exemplary” ratings; 21 received “outstanding” ratings; and five received “satisfactory” ratings.

Students must receive an “exemplary” rating in order to move on to state competition, where they will perform the same piece. State contest is April 26 at University of Missouri in Columbia.
