OMS Performs at the Darien Lake Music Festival Competition
On Friday, May 19, 2017, the Oswego Middle School String Orchestra traveled to perform and compete at the Darien Lake Music Festival competition at Six Flags Darien Lake.
The OMS string orchestra performed three pieces for an enthusiastic audience which included two judges. The students pictured here were awarded the highest possible rating of ‘Superior with Distinction’ and were also awarded a plaque for taking first place among the other string orchestras performing. The Oswego Middle School Orchestra was also given a trophy for ‘Grand Champions’, which was given because they received the highest score of any group at their performance site that day. There were a total of 15 groups at the Orchestra’s performance site, including friendly rivals Skaneateles Middle School Orchestra and East Aurora Middle School Orchestra. The Oswego Middle School Orchestra’s score average was 98.9 out of 100.
After the performance, the students enjoyed a fun-filled day in the park culminating with the awards ceremony where they were presented with their first place plaque and their Grand Champions Trophy. Director Ms. Debbie Mazurek, said she was ‘…very proud of her students not only for their performance, but for representing Oswego with their excellent behavior, supportive character and teamwork. The goal is excellence on every level, and the Oswego Middle School String Orchestra students achieved that.’
