Luverne band, choir earn three superiors at large group contest

Luverne High School’s concert band, concert choir and ninth-grade girls’ choir received superior ratings March 15 at the Minnesota State High School League’s large group music contest in Pipestone.

Three judges evaluated each group’s performances out of a possible top score of 40. Superior is the highest rating a group can earn.

“The band did earn a perfect score from one of the judges,” said band instructor Richard Owen. “The students really worked hard and saw it pay off.”

The concert choir earned scores of 36, 38 and 38 for a superior rating and the ninth-grade girls’ choir received scores of 36, 37 and 38, also a superior rating.
