GOLD w/ DISTINCTION





2015 RESULTS:  GOLD w/ DISTINCTION

The Concert Choir, under the direction of Mr. Anthony, achieved the highest rating possible at this year's NYSSMA Majors, GOLD w/ DISTINCTION. It is the eighth time in that the choir has achieved this honor. In fact, the choir has only ever achieved GOLD or better in the 14 years it has been going to NYSSMA Majors. At the NYSSMA Major Organization Evaluation Festival the choir is evaluated by a panel of adjudicators/judges who write constructive comments and score the choir in specific areas of performance criteria. The ratings are Certificate of Participation, Bronze, Silver, Gold, & Gold w/ Distinction. Ratings are awarded based upon the judges' assessments of how well the choir has demonstrated its proficiency at the level presented.
