Congratulations to the Central Middle School Band on their Sweepstakes Superior Rated performance last week at the Louisiana Music Educators Association District IV Large Ensemble Assessment held in Zachary, LA.
The band spent several months of hard work and practice preparing three concert pieces - Adrenaline Engines by Randall Standridge, Dorian Landscape by Barry Kopetz, and Whale Warriors by Brian Balmages. All three stage judges gave the band superior ratings with perfect sheets, or all A's in every category! They complimented the band on their maturity of sound and the difficulty level of the program they performed. Afterwards, the band was assessed in their ability to sightread music for the first time. For this, the band had eight minutes to study a piece of music that they have never seen before and perform it immediately after. All three sight-reading judges also gave the band superior ratings.
The band was the only middle school band in Ascension Parish to receive Superior Ratings from all six judges and only one of six middle school bands in the whole district to receive a "Sweepstakes" trophy.
Aside from how well the students performed, these Mustangs represented Central Middle School with pride and maturity. We could not be more proud of these students!
Special Thanks to our Band Boosters for helping to chaperone and providing a pizza lunch for the kids. They enjoyed it!
