Congratulations to members of Little Miami Bands who participated OMEA District 13 Solo and Ensemble Contest at Blanchester High School on Feb. 8.  Each were judged by a professional musician/music educator on such criteria as tone, intonation, interpretation, and technique.  The students then earned a rating from I to V, with a I being Superior, a II Excellent, a III Good, a IV Poor and a V Very Poor. 

All seven Little Miami participants received superior ratings.
