UPDATE: Congratulations to the Jazz Band for all of the hard work that went into their MPA Performance!  While we fell short of our goal of an overall Superior rating (1 Superior & 2 Excellent ratings), it has been a valuable learning experience!  We are currently listening intently to our performance recording and adjudicator comments so that we might elevate our future performances!

Millennium’s Jazz Band will be taking part in the Florida Bandmasters Association Jazz Music Performance Assessment (MPA) on Thursday, February 21 at 4:30PM at Oviedo High School.

Much like the FCAT for bands, Music Performance Assessments feature a panel of certified adjudicators from around the state of Florida that listen to a band’s performance and delivers constructive comments and ratings to indicate their progress and achievement against a set of standards.  All performances are free and open to the public!

Millennium students will be leaving Millennium via school bus around noon, and will need to bring their uniforms to school on the morning of Feb. 21st.  Students will be missing a portion of Period 4 & all of Period 8 (Period 6 is the Jazz Band class).  See the itinerary below for trip details:
