Pikeville Wind Band Makes School History 2017 PHS Wind Band

The Pikeville High School Wind Band made school history on Tuesday, May 9 at the KMEA State Concert Band Assessment at Comstock Hall at the University of Louisville School of Music by being awarded a distinguished rating at the KMEA State Concert Band Assessment.  Bands from across the Commonwealth perform in this prestigious event. To qualify, participating bands must receive a distinguished rating at one of the state’s district concert band assessments.

Bands are judged in seven categories: tone quality, intonation, interpretation, technique, rhythm, balance, and overall factors. The assessment requires that the participating ensembles “compete” against themselves within the context of the national standards of music performance. The assessment results are determined by a panel of three nationally-known judges. Judges determine if each band meets the national performance standards required by the music composers. Judges then rate the performance in one of four categories: Distinguished, Proficient, Apprentice, or Novice.

Based upon the decision of the judges, the Pikeville Wind Band was awarded a Distinguished rating. This is the first statewide distinguished rating garnered by the Pikeville High School band program and one of only two distinguished ratings ever awarded within KMEA District Nine history.
