Each year, the North Carolina Bandmasters Eastern District provides its members’ students with the opportunity to perform as a soloist or ensemble, as a part of the Solo & Ensemble Music Performance Adjudication. Each student performance is adjudicated according to certain criteria and then given one of five ratings. This event allows students to gain additional performance practice, and receive positive and constructive feedback to help improve their musicianship in the future.
