Recently, Gainesville Middle School seventh- and eighth- grade bands participated in the annual Georgia Music Educators Association Large Group Performance Evaluations in Athens. 

Both GMS bands earned the highest possible rating of 1, or superior, from all four judges, for an overall rating of superior. The bands are under the leadership of band director Craig Bailey.

Certified state-assigned judges listened to the groups perform a prepared program of three 

musical selections on stage and then allowed them to perform a sight-reading selection that band members had never seen before.
