Wisconsin School Music Association STATE Solo & Ensemble Festival

Saturday, April 27, 2024


Talented music students from Delavan-Darien High School participated in the WSMA State Solo & Ensemble Festival at UW-Whitewater on Saturday, April 27th.  Students qualified for this event by receiving a top rating at the district event for their performance of the most challenging level of music on the WSMA list.


Band director, Mr. Nick Stark, Choir director, Mr. Jacob Krueger, and Orchestra teacher, Mrs. Jennifer Bayerl are proud of their student’s accomplishments. These DDHS students performed amongst the best young musicians in the region. When DDHS students perform at the State Festival, students, families, teachers, administrators and college faculty from all around the state who are in attendance know that great things are happening in Delavan-Darien Schools.  Congratulations to these outstanding musicians!
