Padua’s Symphonic Band participated at the OMEA (Ohio Music Education Association) District Band Adjudicated Event at Westlake High School on Saturday, March 16, 2019. The nearly 60-member ensemble received a Superior Rating (I) in both the prepared concert performance and the sight-reading performance.

OMEA defines a superior rating as, “An outstanding performance with very few technical errors and exemplifying a truly musical expression. This rating should be reserved for the truly outstanding performance.”

Padua’s Symphonic Band has earned seven superiors in the past 11 years under Mr. Mark Wozniak’s ’97 direction. The other four years they earned a rating of Excellent (II).
