Community

In what was already planning to be a busy week of performances, it was a blessing to see our community join together to support the tragedy that occurred last weekend. There were many forms of support that have occurred and will continue to occur in the weeks ahead, however, the many displays of love and assistance has been overwhelming. Please continue to remember this family in your thoughts and prayers.

MPA Week

THANK YOU to each performer for a great week! Each of our three ensembles have grown as a result of the process and now it is time to listen to the feedback and use it to plot a course for continuing to grow and become better musicians and ensembles.

It has been a busy month of preparation and now we are looking forward to working towards Spring Concert literature as well as ways to continue to develop our performance techniques!

Volunteer/Fundraising Opportunity 

We have TWO (that’s right….. TWO!) opportunities this weekend for you to join is an help us earn some money for our program. First, we have a parking assistance opportunity to help the Apopka Rotary club on Saturday, March 14th at Kit Land Nelson Park that will require three shifts of 6-10 workers. Within each shift two of the workers need to be adults. Sign ups will begin on Monday. The second opportunity will be hosting an event for OrlandoFest, a school-group travel company, that is using our facility for performances this weekend. Our students will provide simple stage set up assistance, etc. and possibly sell concessions for the students that are at our school on this day.

Both events will provide each student with the opportunity to earn money towards their individual accounts OR, Volunteer Hours can be earned if that is something you wish to receive. SIGN UPS will occur in the band room this week.

Thank You’s

Many thanks to our parents who chaperoned this weekend’s MPA events. We are most grateful for you giving up your time to be with us and for the service you gave our members.

Thank you to our Trumpet Trio for your support of the funeral for Trinity Bachmann on Friday morning. You did an outstanding job representing our community through music.

Thank you to each MPA performer – it has been a blast!
