To allow our outstanding students, who qualified for the State Solo contest, the opportunity to receive professional feedback and recognition for their time and efforts. Also, to encourage them to continue to pursue musical excellence and artistry - even in the face of adversity. We believe that providing a virtual venue for these students to shine will help promote engagement and excitement at a time when these critical elements are in very short supply. Late April and May have traditionally been times when some of our greatest levels of musical achievement have been on display. This will allow a huge number of our musical leaders the opportunity to practice, perform, receive professional critique, and (most importantly) be recognized and celebrated.
Any student that qualified for the OSAA state solo contest and was submitted by their OMEA district to OSAA for a spot at the OSAA contest is eligible for this event. This would include all submissions in all categories to include 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place finishers and all 1st, 2nd and 3rd alternates. All of these students would have received state qualifying scores at their district festivals. Since this event will not have the same time constraints as a normal day-long festival, we are able to open it to all of these qualifiers. We understand that there may be quite a few qualifiers that will not be able to, or want to participate at this point for a wide variety of reasons. We regret that this may be the case, but believe there is great benefit in offering this opportunity to any qualifiers that wish to participate.
