THAYER -- The sixth annual Elementary and Junior High Music Festival was held at Marshfield High School March 17. Twenty Thayer Elementary students participated in the festival. According to Thayer Elementary Music Director Patti Kelly, the students performed in 10 different events including instrumental solos and ensembles. The MJH Band festival's philosophy is to maintain a positive yet constructive attitude toward young musicians and a learning experience for all involved. Ratings are given as such: "I" for superior, a very well prepared performance; "II" for good, on the right track, but still having some technical problems, and "III" for needs improvement, doing some things okay, but lacking in technical skills and/or preparation. They received seven Honor "I' ratings and three "II" ratings.
