The Spartanburg District Six Concert Bands from each middle and high school performed at the South Carolina Band Director’s Association Concert Performance Assessment. Concert Bands are adjudicated on two full band music selections by three concert stage judges. Then, the entire band has a few minutes to silently study a brand new piece of music and to perform it immediately for two additional judges (Sight-reading)! Judges rate each group from I (Superior) to V (Poor). The average of the five judges produces an overall rating. Bands that receive a Superior rating from all five judges are recognized as “Superior with Distinction.”
All five of our District Six Concert Bands received an Overall Superior Rating!
