Band Receives Superior Rating; Places First Overall at Music in the Parks

Monsignor Slade’s Advanced Instrumental Band performed at Music in the Parks, an instrumental and choral competition held in Hershey, PA. Music In The Parks is an educationally-focused music festival that provides school performing ensembles the opportunity to learn from exceptional conductors in the field of music education today. Their mission is to bring together student musicians and adjudicator-clinicians for performances to result in musical growth, achievement and recognition for both the individuals and the participating music programs. Slade's 50-plus member band received a Superior Rating from the independent judges and scorers following their performance.

The student musicians, led by director Mr. Wes Osment, played the following pieces:

  • Omega March
  • Equinox
  • Affirmation Overature

Seeded in a category of small middle school bands, the Slade band members received first place in their division followed by first place overall.  Congratulations!  We are so proud of your hard work and commitment to the fabulous instrumental music program at Monsignor Slade Catholic School.

Following the performance, students and their families were able to purchase discounted tickets to enjoy Hershey Park on that day or a later day in the season.
