The Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) has posted the results for the 2019 WSMA High School State Honors Project: This year, more than 1,400 students auditioned for 428 positions in five honors ensembles. 26 Academy students were selected to participate in the Honors Music Project, and various others were selected as alternates.


WSMA Exemplary Performance Award

The Exemplary Performance Recognition Project expands recognition of outstanding student performers at the WSMA State Solo & Ensemble Festival: State festival adjudicators identify exceptional performances at each of the state festival campuses through a two step process: nomination and final selection. Students who are selected for the award receive a certificate from WSMA in recognition of their outstanding performance at the State Festival. 14 Academy student events received this award, and many others were nominated.


Steinway Junior Piano Competition

Steinway & Sons held their second annual Steinway Junior Piano Competition for young pianists ages 18 and under. The competition, which was held at Steinway showrooms throughout the United States and Canada, represents the pursuit of superior artistic expression through piano performance. Academy students placed in both the second and third division categories.


WMTA Badger State Keyboard Competition

Hosted by the Wisconsin Music Teacher Association (WMTA), Badger is the state level competitions for students’ progressing on from District Auditions. The goal of this exciting state competition is to challenge students to perform the same repertoire as at District Auditions, but at a more advanced level. Highly motivated students are provided with an opportunity to hone performance skills, grow as musical artists, and compete with others across the state. 3 Academy students won their age group, 3 were runners-up, and 6 received honorable mentions.


Congratulations, everyone!
