Marianne Lear, Isabel Molina and Bailey Monson, students at Solon Springs High School, performed a vocal trio music selection, “Hello, Girls,” as part of the Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) Exemplary Performance Recital on Oct. 24 at the annual Wisconsin State Music Conference in Madison.

In the spring, WSMA adjudicators identified truly exemplary performances from the nine WSMA state solo and ensemble festivals. Of the more than 11,000 vocal and instrumental solos and ensembles scheduled at the state festivals, 526 were selected as “exemplary” in the Exemplary Performance Recognition Project.

After a careful screening process, 11 of those solos and ensembles were chosen to be part of the combined recital for an audience of music teachers, parents, other family members, friends and peers.
