Fifth-grade Band Solos

51 fifth-grade band students performed at Maple Grove Elementary’s Band Solo Night on Feb. 20. ¬†Each child had a five-minute performance slot where they performed a solo on their instrument with a piano accompanist. The children showcased all their talent and effort for family, friends and also a clinician, who listened and provided helpful feedback. ¬†The ability to play a solo is a good measurement of all the learning that has taken place so far this year in band with their teacher, Mr. Graziano. ¬†Congratulations to the fifth grade band students for their hard work and preparation for this solo event.
