Mount Pleasant Junior High School Bands earn high ratings.
The Mount Pleasant Junior High School Symphonic Band and Honors Band competed in Concert and Sight-Reading contest in Pleasant Grove on April 4, 2019.
The Symphonic Band, made up mostly of 7th-grade band students, received a superior rating (1st division) for their stage performance, accepting straight 1’s. They also received an excellent rating (2nd division) for their sight-reading performance. The Symphonic Band is directed by Alicia Hargett.
The Honors Band, made up of 8th-grade band students, received a superior rating (1st division) for their sight-reading performance, accepting straight 1’s. They also received an excellent rating (2nd division) for their stage performance. The Honors Band is directed by Karen Luckett.
“We are extremely proud of our band students,” said Hargett. “This is only the second time in program history for the Symphonic Band to receive straight 1’s for their stage performance. And it is the first time in 10 years for the Honors Band to receive straight 1’s in sight-reading, which is very difficult to achieve. We are so pleased with how hard these students have worked.”
