Lexi Tibbetts – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) -The LRHS band program has multiple music competitions coming up. The band program is actively preparing for their Musical Performance Assessments (MPA) scheduled over the next few months.
Solo and ensemble MPAs will take place on Feb. 7, Jazz band MPAs are on Feb. 12, and concert band MPAs is Mar. 5. MPAs are an opportunity for students to show off what they’ve learned in band and how much they’ve improved.
LRHS assistant band director Kristen Greene said, “We’ve got a lot of kids involved and participating this year.”
The LRHS band program is also having concerts for all the groups attending MPAs. The Pre-MPA Solo and Ensemble concert is set for Jan. 28, the Pre-MPA jazz concert will for Feb. 4, and the Pre-MPA concert band performance Feb. 25.
These concerts will allow students to run through the music they’ve prepared for an audience of family and friends. All of these concerts are free at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. Middle school students will also be attending the Pre-MPA concert band’s performance to get a look at what to expect when they enter high school.
