On March 12, Advanced Women’s Choir, Singers, Chorale and Madrigals participated in the KMEA District 7 Festival Assessment. KMEA Assessment is one of the most important performances of our year because it is the only time of the year where we are critically evaluated and most importantly are asked to demonstrate music literacy skills.
