Thank you to all of the entries we received! It was a pleasure to watch them all which made it very difficult to decide who our TOP 10 were. We highly recommend that you take some time to VIEW ALL of the recordings, as the schools have clearly put in a lot of work in their entries, and they deserve to be seen.
The following recordings are our TOP 10, they are in no particular order and have been selected based not only on how their music sounds, but primarily on the fun, creativity, and enjoyment evident when we watch. Some have been playing a short amount of time while others have been playing a few years now. Once you know who you would like to vote for, click here to cast your vote!
