JZMS Band Receives Superior Rating - April 2017


The JZMS Band under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Yeager recently attended the South Carolina Concert Band Performance Assessment where they earned a Superior rating. 

According to Dr. Yeager, "Middle and high school bands from across the state participate in this event each year, which occurs at several sites. The students prepare three pieces to play for three judges, and the judges provide comments and assign ratings. After performing the prepared pieces, bands play a piece of music that neither the students, nor the director, has ever seen. Two more judges rate that performance. At the end, all the scores are compiled, and bands are given ratings of Superior, Excellent, Good, Fair, or Poor. 
The Zucker band earned a Superior rating (the highest category) for the prepared pieces, and missed qualifying for an overall Superior rating by one point."

Congratulations to Dr. Yeager and the band on their impressive showing!!
