Admin - "What's this UIL contest in February, don't you go in April?"
Me - "That's solo and ensemble, it's like Track and Field, lots of kids competing on their own or in small teams in different events like flute solos, percussion ensembles, etc."
Admin - "and they can Advance to State?"
Me - "yes sir. Think of it like this. If a pole vaulter went to District Track, and to advance to State, they just had to clear 10'. Everyone who cleared 10' advances. But when they get to state, that bar is at 15' now."
