On January 25th, 7th and 8th grade music students travelled to Whitehall Memorial School in order to participate in solos, duets, and trios. They performed in front of a judge and were rated based on that performance. The students could perform in class C, B or A. The classes increase in difficulty, with class A being the most difficult. Class A and B selections are typically meant for high school students. The judges also offered the students tips for performing, practicing and becoming a better musician.
