MPA is almost here!

MPA is an important annual performance assessment that is both academic and fun. Similar to a concert, it is worth a large amount of points. In the third quarter, it will be the only performance so the grade impact is even higher.

Examine these dates carefully and note them in your calendar — or on the fridge! Each chorus is assigned a performance date/time about four weeks before the event. We will only participate on one day. An email will be sent home as soon as we know the details.

Men in Choir

As is our tradition, the men of Concert Choir and Men’s Choir will combine in performance at MPA. To achieve this, those two groups must rehearse together after school. These dates were provided with the handbook at the beginning of the year, and they are listed on the chorus web site (boonechorus.com).

Make sure the dates below are in your calendar and that you are available. Attendance is for a grade.
