On Saturday, January 7 and Saturday, January 14, ten students from the Lake Shore Middle 6th-8th Grade Orchestras performed at the Erie County Music Educators Association (ECMEA) Solo Festivals held at Depew Middle/High School (January 7) and Orchard Park High School (January 14).

Each student prepared a solo and a series of scales. They were also given an example to sight-read. The ECMEA Solo Festival provides students throughout Erie County an opportunity to perform for another teacher and a chance to be selected for the All-County Festivals in March. Congratulations to these students for doing an excellent job this year!
