March 15, 2018 – Over 1,000 Junior High/Middle school students from BCSD schools participated in the 12thAnnual Band and Orchestra Standards Festival held at Bakersfield College. Eighteen bands and orchestras performed throughout the day for a panel of judges, which assigned scores and gave immediate feedback and instruction.
The event serves as a benchmark for music instruction and performance. The vast majority of student ensembles received Superior or Excellent ratings, with seven of the groups earning an overall Unanimous Superior, the highest rating possible.
Congratulations to all performers and instructors for a job well done, and thank you for all your hard work and practice!
