They were graded on tone quality, intonation, rhythm, balance and blend, technique, interpretation, articulation, and execution.

Two Simley students also received “Best of Site.” Daniel Williams earned the recognition on trumpet and Taylor Riess on bass clarinet. Congratulations to all of the students on their outstanding performances.
