Shifting to ratings of Gold, Silver and Bronze this year, instead of the old I’s and II’s, the 2018 Missouri State Music Festival was held on Thursday, April 26, 2018. Mason German brought home the record with three Gold medals for Solos in Voice, Piano and Alto Saxophone. Silver Medals went to the Vocal Trio of Mason German, Mia Gayle, Amaya Keele and also the Saxophone Quartet of Mason German, Makenzie Lancaster, Jack Lancaster and Andie Cravens-Knott. Andie also earned Silver for her Baritone Saxophone Solo. The newest member of the state contest group, Jacy Kiser, received a Bronze medal for her Piano Solo. Many thanks to adult Piano Accompanists, Susan Hartley and Sean Montgomery.
