Dorney Park Competition
On Friday, May 20th, Hoboken Charter School (HCS) middle school students participated in the High Notes Music Festival Competition atLower Macungie Middle School in PA. Three groups performed: the 5th/6th Grade Concert Band, the 7th/8th Grade Concert Band, and the HCS Jazz Band. There were two adjudicators who observed and critiqued the student performances. They made an audio tape with helpful tips and gave HCS a score based on several musical factors. All three bands received a rating of “Excellent.” It is not easy to go into a new performance space, set-up and perform in a short amount of time without any practice, but they did it! After the competition, the students went to Dorney Park to celebrate their hard work.
