District Six Bands receive Superior Honors!

The Spartanburg District Six Concert Bands from each middle and high school performed at the South Carolina Band Director’s Association Concert Performance Assessment (formerly known as Concert Festival). Concert Bands are adjudicated on two full band music selections by three concert stage judges. Then, the entire band has a few minutes to silently study a brand new piece of music and to perform it immediately for two additional judges (Sightreading)!

Judges rate each group from I (Superior) to V (Poor). The average of the five judges produces an overall rating. Bands that receive a Superior rating from all five judges are recognized as “Superior with Distinction.”

All five of our District Six Concert Bands received an Overall Superior Rating !

Dorman Symphonic Band – Overall Superior Rating: Dave Bruce and Del Burton, Directors

Dorman Freshman Symphonic Band – Superior with Distinction: Denise Hembree, Director

Dawkins Honor Band – Superior with Distinction: Megan Irby, Director

Fairforest Honor Band – Superior with Distinction: Jarrod Mabrey, Director

Gable Honor Band – Superior with Distinction: Megan Cooper and Christina Herman, Directors

Please take time to congratulate each of our outstanding Band Members and their wonderful Directors! Special thanks also to each of our Administrators, Faculty, D6 Transportation and band parents for their unbelievable support to make these achievements possible!
