Soloist from Monarch Glen Burnie at the Anne Arundel County Solo and Ensemble Festival

Two students at Monarch Glen Burnie, Cleo Amador, Violin (Grade 7) and Dalton Bosserman, Clarinet (Grade 8) played graded solos at the Anne Arundel County (District III) Solo and Ensemble Festival on Saturday, and received Superior (the highest possible rating from an adjudicator; a “I”, on a scale of I-V) ratings, qualifying them for performance at the Maryland State Solo and Ensemble Festival on March 14, 2016.

Per an order from the State School Superintendent, all Monarch campuses are closed through the end of school year and students will continue with distance learning. Free meals to children ages 2 to 18 are available while schools are closed. Additional school closing details and a list of meal sites, can be found on AACPS’s website. View our resource Talking to Children about COVID-19 and Managing their Social and Emotional Needs.
