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.
The JM Concert Band will perform “Fairest of the Fair,” a John Philip Sousa march composed in 1908; “Shenandoah,” composed by Frank Ticheli and published in 1999; and “Jubiloso,” by Ed Huckeby, a high-energy interplay between winds and percussion published in 1989.
Silk Hope will combine its seventh- and eighth-grade bands for its performance. Chatham Middle will feature short, separate performances by their seventh-grade and eighth-grade ensembles.
