The Florida Bandmasters Association District 17 Music Performance Assessment, more commonly known as MPA, is coming to Fernandina Beach High School on November 4, 2017! At this fast paced, prestigious event, 16 High School bands from across Nassau and Duval counties will come and perform for judges who will rate the bands' performances at a Superior, Excellent, Good, Fair, or Poor level. The bands range in size from 21 students to 130 students.
What does this mean for our community? Thousands of people will come to Amelia Island to see their students perform. FBHS will provide a welcoming venue run by countless volunteers including concessions, field assistance, and our island hospitality that makes Fernandina Beach unlike any other.
Please join us for the wonderful event which begins at 3:00pm with Middle School band students from both counties performing the national anthem as they experience the feel of MPA for the first time. Stay to hear and see performances, practiced for countless hours, and watch as they anxiously receive their results at the end of the night.
Tickets are $7.00 for all , children under school age are free.
