Canfield High School Students Earn 45 Superior Medals!


Thirty-nine members of the Canfield High School Band Program participated in 31 events at the annual Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) District 5 Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event. This year’s event was held virtually.


The OMEA Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event is an opportunity for high school instrumental and vocal students to perform before an adjudicator and be evaluated on that performance. The students entered in a variety of events from solo performances to large ensembles. Entering in three class categories from “A” or most difficult to “C” or least difficult, each event was evaluated and awarded a rating. The rating system used is “I” for a superior performance, “II” for an outstanding performance, “III” for an acceptable performance, “IV” for a poor performance, and “V” for a very poor performance.


Canfield High School earned 24-I’s and 7-II’s. Of the 24 overall I's or Superior ratings, Canfield students brought home 45 Superior medals!
