Weekly Update (10/10- 10/14)

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!

Congratulations again for an outstanding performance on Saturday! 8th place of 21 bands is quite good! We will keep refining so we can hit hard this upcoming Saturday!

This week there are a few things going on this week so stay with it!


Senior Wills-- Seniors, each year, a publication of the Senior Wills goes out for students to read on the bus ride to MPA. You should submit your Senior Will using the link on the band app (or the link HERE). You can leave funny or meaningful things to any student or staff member in the band. What you bequeath does not have to be a real item—it can be a joke, or a sort role you played in the band (ie. The math wiz, or the comedian).
