Solo and Ensemble 2018

By: Glen Thompson


Solo and Ensemble is a contest offered to high school students. It is a chance for any musically talented teens to show off their skills and to receive judgement and feedback on their performance. The judges listen to the students’ performances and grade them on a scale from 1-5, 1 being the highest possible score and 5 being the lowest. Arlington was glad to be represented by 17 students this year, with 2 vocal ensembles,1 vocal solo, and 3 instrumental solos.

Both the men and women’s ensemble received superior ratings, both a 1. The first ensemble consisted of Emma Smith, Emily Woodard, Glen Thompson, Abbi Lotz, Jeri Bower, Jessica Haught, Alyssa Bushong, Peyton Rettig, and Cloe Crist. The men’s ensemble consisted of Collin Frazier, Kobie Parrish, Morgan Rossman, Andrew Burnett, Cameron Haught, and Carter Russell.

The vocal soloist was Peyton Rettig, and the instrumental soloists were Madison Hartman and Jacob Branan. Peyton received a 1, Madison received a 2 for both her violin and piano performances. Jacob performed well.

We are all very proud of all the students who performed this year, and we encourage students who are interested in performing at Solo and Ensemble next year to talk to either Mr. Sorenson or Mrs. Griffin.
