Seth Gudmunsen was among 526 Wisconsin students recognized for an exemplary performance at State Solo & Ensemble.

The St. Croix Falls High School student performed an alto solo and tenor/bass solo.

Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) last week announced the middle school and high school students and large ensembles identified by judges for “exemplary performances” in State Solo & Ensemble at one of 10 university locations on April 27, May 3 or May 4.

From over 11,000 vocal and instrumental solos and ensembles scheduled at the 2019 WSMA state festivals, 526 were selected as “exemplary” in the Exemplary Performance Recognition Project. State festival adjudicators identified the most exceptional performances at each of the state festival campuses through a two-step process:

Step 1. Nomination

Throughout the day, adjudicators nominated a limited number of performances that were truly exceptional  – beyond what is typically expected.

Step 2. Final Selection

At the end of the day, each adjudicator selected the most exceptional performances to receive the exemplary recognition from among those nominated.

Selected students and schools receive a certificate from WSMA in recognition of outstanding performance at the state festival.
