On Saturday, March 14, Milford High School’s music program had outstanding ratings for their performances at the OMEA District 14 Large Group Contest.

The MHS Concert Choir and Chamber Singers, under the direction of Mrs. Tracy Carpenter, earned some of the highest ratings of the weekend.  Chamber Singers earned a 1 overall (the highest rating possible) in class AA (the highest difficulty level); and Concert Choir earned a 2 overall in class B, with a 1 in sight singing. This was the first time Milford has sent two choirs to contest, and the highest ratings Milford choirs have ever received! It was also the first AA choir Milford has ever sent to this competition.

All three bands (Concert Red and Concert White and Symphonic Band) received “Superior” (top) ratings from all judges at the OMEA Large Group Assessment. Both concert bands were performing in Class C and the Symphonic Band performed in class AA (the highest classification). The Symphonic and Red bands are under the direction of Mr. Brian Brown and the white band under the direction of Mr. John Espy.
