Boyle bands receive Distinguished ratings

Two Boyle County Schools bands received Distinguished ratings in competition Wednesday at the Kentucky Music Educators Association's Concert Band Festival at Eastern Kentucky University.

The Boyle County Seventh and Eighth Grade Middle School Band and the Boyle County High School Symphonic Band received the highest honor from three judges for prepared music and sight-reading.

"I couldn't be happier with our KMEA results," said director Tim Blevins. "The kids did a great job with their prepared music, but the sight-reading portion of the assessment is extra challenging. The students get only five minutes to talk through a piece of music, after which they must perform it for the judge. I feel being able to sight-read shows the students truly understand their subject and are able to apply principles and fundamentals that are essential to their music education."
