Metzger Bands Clean Up For Sweepstakes

The Metzger Band program continues to show it's tremendous quality and is solidifying its reputation as a high performing group of musicians.  For the second straight year, both the Metzger Honors and Symphonic Bands received Sweepstakes 1st Division ratings from all six judges. That means they got the highest rating from all six judges in both a concert setting and in sight reading.  Sight reading is playing a piece as a group that no one has seen before. The students are given a few minutes to look at their parts and the band director is allowed to talk them through it for a very limited amount of time and then they play it to the best of their ability...that's tough.  But both bands aced both categories.

Congratulations to both groups and to the Director of Bands Mr. John Robertson.
