On February 6-7, a number of Berkley High School band students competed at District IV Solo and Ensemble Festival in Clarkston. I'm very proud to say that all students who participated received division I or II ratings.
The following students received Division I (outstanding) ratings:
--Megan MacDonald: Flute solo
--Rachel Barth: Clarinet solo
--Anna Dimanin: Trumpet solo
--Megan Gilson: Flute solo
--Nick Rifel: Trumpet solo
--Daniel Okun: Tuba solo
--Anna Dimanin & Nick Rifel: Trumpet duet
The following students received Division II ratings:
--Matt Germaine: Trombone solo
--Joylene Jabboori-Ryan: Flute solo
--Matt Germaine, Stephen Tryban & Jeremy Hermann: Trombone trio

Those students who received a I will now go on to represent BHS at State Solo and Ensemble Festival on Saturday, March 28th. Wish them luck! And thank you to all who competed--you make our program better!
