Top Results at Winter Park Ski-Music Festival
The band had a successful trip to the Winter Park Ski-Music Festival. Millard South had 5 different ensembles perform (more than any other school there). Each of our ensembles performed, as stated in the judges comments, "a challenging program". All 5 ensembles received a "1" rating AND all 5 ensembles WON their division.
They had time to ski and participate in many other winter-type activities. They were wonderful representatives of our school from every angle.
Thanks for letting them participate in this opportunity and thanks for your support.
