Block Island piano students rate all “A’s” at Ratings Festival
On Saturday May 21, six young island pianists attended the annual Rhode Island
Solo and Ensemble Ratings Festival at Ponaganset High School. This festival, attended by over 2,000 music students from Rhode Island, gives the students an opportunity to perform a composition they have learned and be evaluated on areas such as tone, rhythm, technique, interpretation, and presentation.
The Block Island musicians were well prepared and very impressive, earning all Superiors for music in levels one and two. All received a medal for their high marks.
Attending the Festival were pianists Skyler Bates, Madelynn Walsh, Keira Closter, Macy Robb, Elizabeth Evans, and Max Balmforth.
Congratulations are well deserved for their dedication and practice.
