The classrooms were filled with instruments, singing and dancing Friday at the district music contest in Sutherland.

Lincoln County schools Brady, Hershey, Maxwell, St. Pat’s, Sutherland and Wallace were among the 14 class B, C, and D schools, and nearly 1,000 musicians performed.

Due to the number of entries, members of both the Presbyterian and Methodist churches helped keep the meet on schedule.

Contestants competed in vocal and instrumental solos. Duets and ensembles performed before judges in hopes of receiving superior ratings.

In addition, choir and band performances were scored.

Groups that received superior ratings from each of the three judges took home a plaque commemorating their accomplishment of straight superiors.

Ogallala led all schools with five plaques, including two for mixed chorus groups, as well as jazz choir, concert band and jazz band.

The host team, Sutherland, was right behind, with four plaques -- concert band, mixed chorus, women’s chorus and show choir.

Cozad received two plaques, one for sophomore vocal ensemble and one for women’s chorus.

Hershey received two plaques -- concert band and jazz band.

Wallace also took home two -- mixed choir and women’s choir

Gothenburg scored one for their concert band’s performance.

The district contest marks the end of the high school music season.
