This past weekend, the CMS Intermediate/Advanced Bands and Chorus competed for the first time ever in the Music in the Parks competition at Hershey Park, PA. The results were outstanding……..the CMS band got Superior ratings (the highest possible) and 1st place in the Concert Band category. The CMS chorus received Excellent ratings (the 2nd highest) and 2nd place in the Mixed Chorus category. The final award, the Esprit de Corps award, which is awarded based on good sportsmanship, behavior, and being respectful towards staff and other schools, was awarded to Caroline Middle School band and chorus due to their awesome behavior. They also clapped and cheered for other bands and choruses at the awards ceremony. The students want to say a big thank you to all the parents that chaperoned the trip and to Ms. Angela Wright for approving the event for the CMS music department. Also congratulations to Mrs. Mary Yanos, chorus director and Ms. Karen Mott, band director on your awards!
