Fifteen members of the Gibraltar band performed at the State Solo and Ensemble Festival this year. The event was held at the UW-Green Bay campus on May 4th for the band. Charlie Eckhardt, leader of the Gibraltar band program was very proud of all the participants. There are three levels of performers when it comes to the Solo and Ensemble Festival; Class A, Class B and Class C. All who qualify for the state festival are in Class A. He says it’s part of a long journey to work hard and truly get to the level of a Class A performer.
Many of Gibraltar’s performers received a score of 1, which is the best possible. Some of those performers were Eric Hoyerman, Angel Jauregui and Simon Kopsichke among others.
