Sixty 7th-12th grade students from the Bartlesville Public School District participated in the 6th Annual Bartlesville Choir Solo Festival held March 5, 2016 at the Bartlesville HIgh School Fine Arts Center. 

Students were required to sing an art song selection, which was sometimes in a foreign language. Marjorie Green, Senior High Vocal Music Director, indicated that judges used a rubric scale published by the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association to give a rating of 1-5. Judges were listening for tone quality, accuracy of pitches and rhythm, technique/artistry, interpretation of the piece, diction, memory and the overall performance and how it conveyed to the listener.

Rankings include:
1 = Superior = superior-outstanding in nearly every detail
2 = Excellent or Above Average
3 = Good or Average
4 = Fair or Below Average
