Our award winning band and chorus performed in the MPA competition Tuesday, March 15th at Smoky Mountain High School. MPA stands for Musical Performance Adjudication.
The BHS band performed at 3:10, in a three group six, the hardest level, selection for a panel of three judges. After that, the band sight read music for a fourth judge.
Jim Leatherwood said, “The band played very well, and came home with straight superior ratings.”
Bart Gilleland said “The choir has been doing an excellent job pushing to and through their limits, and have met their goals.”
The chorus placed excellent in concert doing grade six music, the highest level, and did not participate in sight reading.
Gilleland said “I am extremely proud of my kids!”
Neither the chorus or the band is done this year. They both have a lot to do by the end of this year.
