FISD Solo Contest- February 3rd
The district solo contest is on Saturday, February 3rd at Stafford Middle School. The contest runs from 9am-4 pm. Students will be assigned an individual time to perform for their judge. The performance plus the warm-up time should take between 30-45 minutes total.
The solo schedule can be viewed HERE. While each student has a room number that they have been assigned, we will not know the physical number for the student's rooms until next week. We will share that with you once we get that information.
Students should arrive 20-30 minutes before their solo time so that they can warm up and find their rooms and should leave after their performance. All scores and medals will be distributed on Monday February 5, so there is no reason to stay at Stafford after the conclusion of their performance.
As a reminder, this is a large district event involving over 500 students in 7 different schools. The schedule is finalized and cannot be changed.
Students in Concert and Symphonic Band will have a weekly sectional starting the week of January 16 - Spring Break. Click here to view the schedule.
