MPA Retreat is a REQUIRED and GRADED event. This is when we pay to bring in professionals on every instrument and 3 full ensemble clinicians to help us refine our MPA music. This will take place on Saturday, February 10 from 11:30-4:00 PM. Please eat lunch before coming to DCHS.

Music Performance Assessment (MPA) is the state wide assessment for our bands. We go to Lenoir Rhyne University and perform for a panel of judges, who will then give us a rating. These performances will take place in a window of time. The window is March 13-15. More information will be provided in the next few weeks.
- Marching Band Uniforms and Instruments
All marching band uniforms and instruments should be turned in by now. This is so that we can get all of them cleaned and repaired.
