Solo and Ensemble
Solo and Ensemble Festival will be held on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17 from 8-4 at Fredrick Douglass High School. As always, there are times throughout the day and your time will be announced shortly after all sign ups are complete. If you have another event that day but would still like to participate, please let me know the specifics so we can schedule you during the AM or PM.
Cost for String and Concert will be $7 for each solo entry and/or $12 for each ensemble. Please bring a CHECK made out to “Lafayette Orchestra Association” or cash in the exact amount (we do not keep change available) by Monday, October 10 along with the form located below. Only one form is needed per ensemble.
There is NO COST for Symphonic Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra or SCAPA majors since this is a requirement. These students can do either a solo or ensemble but if you’d like to do both, you’ll need to pay the difference since only one event is paid for. SCAPA majors will be assigned ensemble groups within the week so if you’d like to also do a solo for State, please let us know and remember to pay the additional cost of the solo.
Kentucky has a state-wide solo festival. To be considered for the state-wide solo festival, you must declare your desire to perform and then the judge must recommend you to attend. If your solo has a piano part, you MUST have a pianist at solo and ensemble. The state festival will be in the spring. There is a state list of acceptable solo and ensemble pieces that can be found at KMEA.org or www.lafayetteorchestra.org
