VMEA Contest Results 2019

Emerald Ridge High School choir students participated in the Valley Music Educator's Association (VMEA) Solo and Ensemble Contest on Saturday March 2, 2019 at Sumner High School. There were 20 entries at the contest, and more male solo entries than any other school in our region.  Our region includes all schools in Puyallup, Federal Way, and Sumner School Districts. Winners in each category will compete against winners from 21 other regions around the state on April 26th and April 27th at CWU. Of the 12 categories for competition, we won one category, as well as several 2nd and 3rd place finishers who are alternates to state. If you have any of these students in class, please take the time to congratulate them. They worked extremely hard to make it to this point. It was fine set of performances and our Emerald Ridge students represented our school so well.
