Concert Band Earns Straight Superior Ratings
On Wednesday, March 22, 2023 the Mount Airy High School Concert Band traveled to the Northwest District North Carolina Bandmasters Association (NWNCBA) Music Performance Adjudication (MPA). This event is hosted annually at Lenoir-Rhyne University in March. This is the first time since the 1980s that Mount Airy has performed at the MPA and the first time since 1979 that the band has achieved straight superior ratings. This feat showcases the dedication of these students and their first year band director, Nick Tirpak.
