Chipley to Host District Concert Band Assessment ……..

Chipley High School is the place to hear great music-making on March 9th and 10th as the music department hosts the annual Florida Bandmasters Association District 2 North Concert Band Music Performance Assessment. 23 bands from 19 schools in the surrounding counties will be performing on stage at CHS.

The Music performance Assessment process is administered by the Florida Bandmasters Association as a learning and assessment tool to help our state’s band programs with professional feedback and evaluation. Many school districts have adopted the MPA as a major portion of band students’ Subject Area Exam. Each band’s performance on stage is evaluated in the areas of Performance Fundamentals, Technical Preparation, and Musical Effect by three state-certified adjudicators. Following the stage performance, each band moves to the Sightreading room where they are evaluated on their ability to perform a march and an overture that they have never seen before. The judges in each area rated each band’s performance on a 5-point scale ranging from “Superior” to “Poor”.

The event is free and open to the public. All performances will take place in the CHS Auditorium at the back of the school campus on Brickyard Road. For more information, contact the Chipley Band Office at 638-6100, ext.525.
