Additionally, I am confident that Guin Kennedy would have received a I rating for her horn solo, but she was, unfortunately, unable to perform in the afternoon for reasons outside of her control. She worked very hard this semester, and she will still get to go to State with the Brass Ensemble.

Congratulations to you all.
