McCracken earns awards at competition

Staff report

The McCracken County High School Bands performed in late March at the Regional Concert Festival, presented by the Kentucky Music Educators Association at Murray State University.

The Concert Band, Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble each received the rating of Distinguished in their first year.

"It is a great start and a testament to the work that has happened in previous years to prepare the students to perform at a distinguished level," said Steven Page, band director.

This is the first time that a west Kentucky high school has taken three separate bands to concert festival, he said.

The Concert Band performed Grade 3 music and the Symphonic Band played Grade 4 literature. The  Wind Ensemble performed Grade 5 music, joining Murray High School as the only band in the region to play that level.

"MCHS has 150 students in the program so that allowed us to offer three different band classes. Students are able to learn music that is best suited for their ability and experience," Page added. "This sets a new standard for offering students an appropriate musical challenge, but still achieving excellence."
