On April 22, 10 band students from Community Middle School performed at the annual Solo & Ensemble Performance Assessment event in Eagleville, all receiving the highest possible rating of I -- Superior. This yearly event is sanctioned by the Middle Tennessee School Band & Orchestra Association and hosted by Eagleville School.

During this event band and orchestra students from across the region come to perform solos, duets, and other various chamber music, to be judged. These student performers typically spend weeks, or even months, preparing their music for this event, at which they are critiqued and rated by a music education professional.
