PMEA Concert Band Adjudication Festival - Wednesday, May 4th

Post date: Apr 15, 2011 2:40:36 PM

We are pleased to announce that the Hempfield High School Symphonic Band will be taking part in a Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Concert Band Adjudication Festival! Much like Marching and Jazz Band Festivals, our performance will be evaluated by three expert judges who will provide us with feedback that will help to foster our musical growth!

The event will be held at Daniel Boone High School on Wednesday, May 4th. Students will stay after school for a quick rehearsal before leaving for Daniel Boone. The Symphonic Band will be performing "Americans We," "A Festival Prelude" by Alfred Reed, and "Incantation and Dance" by John Barnes Chance.

The benefits of these festivals are many (as evidenced by the continued growth of our marching and jazz bands) and I am excited to see the impact that this experience has on our program!
