This March, March 3rd to be exact, the band at Woodlake High School went to the CMEA Festival! CMEA stands for the California Music Education Association. The band attends every year, if not, almost every year. The CMEA festival is a time for schools from all over to come to one place and perform in front of judges. It is not an actual competition, but the groups do get rated on a normal grading scale by how well they perform as well as the fundamentals in their performance. The festival was held at Porterville High School this year and Woodlake got a grade of an 82 out of 100! A great score of a B and a fun time for the band! After their performance, they all hung out, had lunch, and enjoyed the rest of their day because of their hard work. Below is a very small portion of the Woodlake group who took dashing photos in their uniforms. Next time we hope to get the entire group! Great job Woodlake Band!
