Under the direction of Dr. Matthew Bonsignore, Director of Bands, the ensemble shared five selections: The Beginning of All Things by Brooke Pierson; Three Musical Haikus for Band, Never Forgotten, by Stephen Melillo; Hypnotic Memories, by Rossano Galante; Caccia and Chorale by Clifton Williams; and Purple Carnival by Larry L. Alford ed. Frank Erickson. "Being invited to play at MMEA is considered the highest honor for any school band, choir or orchestra!" Dr. Bonsignore shares.
