E.B.F.H.S. BAND & CHOIR EARN DIVISION I RATING
On Saturday, May 10th, the Eddyville Blakesburg Fremont Concert Band and the EBFHS Rocket Chorale earned division I ratings at State Large Group Contest at Mid-Prairie High School in Wellman. Bands and choirs at the contest were evaluated in several categories by a panel of three judges. The music groups were rated on their performances using a scale of 1 through 5. A I rating indicates a superior performance.
The senior leadership in the Rocket Chorale led to the first Division I rating for choir at Large Group Contest since 2007. The choir was among 3 of 12 performing ensembles to receive this rating. This is the 20th year in a row that the E.B.F.H.S Concert Band has earned a division I rating. The EBFHS Band is directed by Joe Overton and the EBFHS Choir is directed by Chris Ellerston.
