Concert Band Adjudication Writing Assignment
Concert Band students need to fill out Adjudication Forms following the MS Band Adjudications. Recordings of our performances may be found below. For some reason, they broke our first piece into two tracks. Students need to have specific comments (What piece? What measure? Who?
