HHS musicians excel at festivals

Hutchinson High School’s vocal music, band and orchestra students participated in the state virtual music festivals this April with students being successful.

With COVID-19 rules in place for all KSHSAA, activities the music festival was changed to virtual. Participants had to have the performance video and music submitted online.  The judging was then done using those uploaded files, using the same five rating scales.

 A “I” rating being the top rating down to a “V” (five) as the lowest.
