Final Thoughts - I must say that this was the best Concert Band tour in my 17 years at MPHS. The students played with amazing skill and were responsive to all the clinicians. The weather was outstanding and the timing of the events went great. This enitre experience was one that will change these students forever and provide them with knowledge they could have never gained in the classroom. I am very proud of all the hard work by the students and each clinician was complimentary as well. My profound thanks Mrs. Lynn, Mr. Halliwell, and Mr. Agresta for the time they put in on the trip. I could also not imagine this going so well without the dedication of the chaperones on the trip. Thanks to Mr. Peters, Mr. Prokop, Ms. Haan, and Mrs. Lawlor. Now we are busy incorperating all we learned into our daily band rehearsals!
