Hamilton High School choir students did well at district and state level Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) competitions. The students performed March 20 at Brown Deer High School for the district event and on April 24 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for state competition.

 

Students entered as individual soloists, part of an ensemble or both. A WSMA judge rated them on a I-V system, with I being the highest.

 

At the district level competition, only students who performed music from the Class A list were eligible to receive a I* rating and move on to the state music festival. The following students earned the right to compete at the state festival by earning the I* excellent rating:

  • Vanessa Balistrieri;
  • Kate Brzozowski;
  • Madeleine Kuenn; and
