The SFHS Music Department is extremely excited to announce their great success at the IHSA Class "A" Solo & Ensemble competition Saturday, March 7 at Huntley High School. All high schools across the state are assigned to an IHSA Regional location where they perform solo and small ensemble pieces in three categories-Vocal, Band, and Orchestra. Our music program sent 84 soloists, 29 ensembles including the Chamber Choir as a whole. Of these entries, 50 received a superior score of "1" (the highest) and 47 received an excellent score of "2". These soloists and ensemble members will receive medals from IHSA.
After the IHSA calculates an overall total score for each school, these scores are ranked by class and placements announced. We are thrilled to announce that St. Francis High School Music Department finished 4th overall! In both the Vocal Division and the Orchestral Division, St. Francis also received 4th and the Band Division received 7th place overall. This year the Class "A" is represented by 59 schools.
Congratulations to Mr. Mamminga and Mrs. Schroeder and all of the students in the SFHS Music Department!
