(As in previous years, we encourage participation with as many students as possible. However, in order to maintain a high level of quality, the musicians in the honor ensembles must have at least the ability to perform music at a level of 2.5 or above on a scale from 1 to 6. The selection of each student to participate in the honor ensembles will be determined by each participating school’s musical director.)
