Randolph band gets superior rating

The Randolph High School Band received superior ratings at the Large Group Music Contest on Tuesday, March 11. The contest was held in Randolph.

They performed "Salvation is Created" by Pavel Chesnokov and "Celebration for Winds and Percussion" by James Swearingen.

"Receiving a superior rating, the highest rating a group can get, the past two years have been extremely rewarding for the kids since most of our juniors and seniors were on a Spanish trip to Puerto Rico last year and this year they were on the Junior/Senior Class trip to Washington, D.C.," said Jackie Sczepanski, Randolph band director.

Randolph also participated at solo and ensemble contest on April 1 and received six superior ratings. Randolph had the second highest number of entries of the seven schools and brought home the third highest number of superior ratings.

The following students received superior ratings for their performances: Carley Mumm, clarinet solo, Makayla

Kuhn for a trumpet solo and a violin solo, Scott Louis, tenor sax solo, Kristin Rudeen, flute solo and Hannah Risty and Bianca Stoesz for a flute and clarinet duet.

The band is currently focusing their musical skills on their Spring Concert for Wednesday, May 14 at 7:00 p.m. In addition to a couple other pieces, the band will be performing Gustav Holst's "Moorside March" from A Moorside Suite, "Finale" from Igor Stravinsky's Firebird

Suite, and an arrangement of the first movement from Beethoven's Symphony No. 5.
