Wind ensemble prepares for states

Markella Paradissis-Wagner – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)  – On April 24 the LRHS Wind Ensemble will compete in Music Performance Assessment (MPA) State competition at Bailey Concert Hall, Broward College.

The group earned “Superior” ratings at last month’s district competition, qualifying them for the next level, state competition.

After performing on stage and sight-reading for judges, those competing in MPAs receive scores of Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent, or Superior in each portion of the evaluation. A Superior is equivalent to an ‘A’ grade, an Excellent a ‘B,” and so forth.

“I’m really excited for our state festival. I think we’ve prepared enough and now it’s just time to play,” said junior oboe player Chandler Reed.
