MPA Results

Our Wind Ensemble earned STRAIGHT SUPERIOR ratings at District Music Performance Assessment last Friday night at Tenoroc High School. Kenysha Johnson, a senior euphonium player, also earned a superior rating in student conducting!

This accomplishment is like being ranked top in our district and qualifying for state. Only a few select groups earn this privilege and this is the third year consecutively that our program has qualified! Our kids are working so hard to learn, perform, and produce amazing music.  Congratulations on this accomplishment!
