Congratulations to the Prairie Middle School Band for their straight superior ratings at the recent Idaho Music Educators District II Festival. Mr. Dan Buckvich and Dr. Lori Enloe, professors of music at U. of I. Lionel Hampton School of music awarded the Prairie Band with Superior ratings at the festival held in Moscow. Mr. Eynon, Prairie Schools Music Director indicated this is the event band directors work towards all year, and Superior ratings are only awarded very judiciously to those groups who truly merit such honors. The adjudication process is rigorous, and impartial, judges comments enable a director to identify those areas of musicianship where the band is on track or in need of improvement for their performances. The Prairie School District Music Department is building a tradition of Pride and Excellence in Performance this year and looks forward to growth in the program for next year!
