Beauregard Band Rates Superior

BHS Concert Band

BHS Band earns superior ratings at ABA MPA.

On Monday, March 6, 2017, the Beauregard High School Concert Band performed at the annual Alabama Bandmasters Association District VI Music Performance Assessment (MPA) held at Opelika High School. The group performed three concert selections for a panel of three adjudicators. The band performed Imperial March by Karl L. King, Hope by R. W. Smith, and Prairie Dances by David R. Holsinger. Following the prepared performance, the band moved to a seperate room for the sight-reading portion of the event. In the sight-reading room, the band was given a new musical selection. The students and the director were allowed seven minutes to study and discuss the selection without rehearsing any portion of it. At the conclusion of the seven minute study period, the group performed the selection to a single adjudicator. The band received a superior rating in both the prepared performance and the sight-reading portion of the event.
