Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble Students
Students must be in attendance at all evening performances AND concert MPA to be eligible to participate in Music in the Parks. Unexcused concert absences will result in the student forfeiting all payments for the trip. There will be no refunds. 

Rationale - What are the benefits of a band festival?
Performance preparation is the most effective educational method for band students. Performing for the Music in the Parks Judges will allow for subjective feedback on the band's efforts because the event is run in the same way as a typical Music Performance Assessment. The friendly competition serves as a positive motivation a potential reward for the students in the same way as it does for athletics. The time in the park afterwards is a PBIS reward of the highest quality, a chance for students to further develop their social skills, and certainly what our young artists deserve for their hard work and dedication.
