The Elberta 7th and 8th grade band attended MPA (Music Performance Assessment) at Baker High School in Mobile. The band did a fantastic job. They performed three pieces for a panel of four state and nationally certified judges and received straight Superiors ratings. This is the highest score a band can receive. We are so proud of your hard work and fantastic behavior!
