Western Chatham MPA Concert

  • Jordan-Matthews Auditorium 910 East Cardinal Street Siler City, NC, 27344 United States (map)

JM’s Concert Band hosts bands from Chatham Middle and Silk Hope schools for a free public concert of their adjudication concert programs in advance of their Music Performance Adjudication, scheduled for March 20-22 at Cedar Ridge High School in Hillsborough. The Music Performance Adjudication is a performance judged by expert musicians to provide a critical assessment of an ensemble’s performance and help musicians improve. Since this concert is preparation for the MPA, the evening will be conducted as the adjudication will take place later this month, with each band performing on a timed schedule and following a fixed format.
