PHS Band shines MSBOA District 8 Band Festival


On Friday, May 11, 2022, the Portland High School band participated in the MSBOA District 8 Band Festival at Grand Ledge High School and “earned straight first division ratings across the board” according to a post in the Portland Music Program Facebook Page.


MSBOA is the Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association. According to their website, “Band and Orchestra Festival is an opportunity for ensembles from member schools to perform a program of three pieces for adjudication, one of which must be from MSBOA's required list. District-level festivals are held at the end of February through the beginning of March. Each group is evaluated by three performance judges and one sight-reading judge.”


As for scoring, the group says, “Ensembles are rated on a scale from 1 to 5 with 1 being the highest rating possible. The overall score is computed using a formula which combines the ratings of each judge. Ensembles that earn an overall 1 rating (or "Superior") are qualified for State Band & Orchestra Festival which is held in late April or early May.”
