The North Judson-San Pierre High School Band participated in the ISSMA High School Organizational Contest this past Friday night at Lowell High School. They earned a Gold Performance Rating. With this Gold rating, they also earned the ISSMA All-Music Award for Band. In order to win this award, a band has to win Gold ratings at the ISSMA Marching Band Contest, qualify a minimum of one soloist and one ensemble to the State Solo and Ensemble contest, and receive a Gold at the ISSMA Jazz Festival and Concert Festival.
The North Judson-San Pierre bands surpassed two of these requirements by winning two Gold ratings at the Jazz Festival and qualifying three soloists and two ensembles to the State Solo and Ensemble contest in addition to the Gold ratings at the Marching Band Festival and Concert Festival. This is the second time they have earned this award with the first being during the 2008-2009 school year.
