MPA Wrap Up

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU…. and THANK YOU!

Our team of parents, students, alums, staff and more came together in incredible fashion on Saturday to serve as excellent ambassadors of our community to host TWENTY-THREE High School Bands from Orange County for our annual Marching Band MPA! I am humbled by the generosity of our village of parents, volunteers, and staff and how giving they have been to ensure that not only our program has the resources needed to perform at the highest level, but so that we can also provide an incredible environment for twenty-two other ensembles to showcase their talents and abilities as well! The commitment to excellence is quite evident in APK!

Our performance was certainly a capstone moment for our season. The students were musical, entertaining, patriotic, and dedicated to the concept that we focused on this year: United We Stand. The memories that are accrued in high school are many, and the memory of this show will be one that they take with them for life. There has been much sacrifice and dedication to see it come to fruition and I am proud of BDMB! THEY GAVE THEIR BEST ON SATURDAY!

As we look forward, we have many incredible things ahead with playoff football, Prism events, and more, but for the moment be proud. Be excited. Enjoy this accomplishment! You are a Straight Superior Band! The joy see on each and every face while circled up on the bird was priceless. You have earned this and are to be commended for a job well done!

I love you all and look forward to many incredible things ahead! But today, celebrate the joys of Saturday’s performance! It was incredible!
