Central High School Symphonic Band Earns Exemplary Performance Award
Central High School’s Symphonic Band was awarded the Exemplary Performance Award by the Georgia Music Educators Association. The Georgia Music Educators Association Exemplary Performance Award was created to recognize outstanding bands, orchestras, and choruses in Georgia whose students excel in all aspects of performance, both individually and as part of a group.
Its purpose also is to encourage and promote participation in the GMEA sponsored performance events including Large Group Performance Evaluation, Solo and Ensemble Performance Evaluation, All-State Band, and the District Honor Band.
To be eligible for the award, a band must participate in all GMEA sponsored events and receive a superior rating at Large Group Performance Evaluation in both Concert Performance and Sight Reading. Bands must have at least one student selected for the All-State Band have a significant number of students receive superior ratings at Solo/Ensemble Performance Evaluation.
GMEA recognized Central High School’s band as one of high expectations on the part of the director and students, and their dedication to musical excellence. Superior programs do not happen without the support of parents and administrators.
The Georgia Music Educators Association Exemplary Performance Award was presented in recognition of outstanding performance in all GMEA-sponsored events during the 2015-2016 school year.
