The fourth annual Music-a-Thon by Maricopa Unified School District is May 12, 1-8 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center, 45012 W. Honeycutt Ave.
Music-a-Thon features all of the bands, choirs, and orchestra from Grades 6-12 in MUSD. This event will feature over 500 students in seven bands, three orchestras, five choirs, and combined performances from Desert Wind Middle School, Maricopa Wells Middle School, and Maricopa High School.
Roger Wagner, director of Instrumental Music at Desert Wind, said, “We are in our fourth year of this event and it has become a must-see for music fans and our community. The beauty of a combined choir of 200 students, the incredible sound of a shared orchestra, and the power of 180 band students in performance cannot be matched.”
This year’s closing combined band piece will be conducted by Maricopa Mayor Christian Price.
“We’re excited to show what MUSD Music can do, as well as invite our yearly special guest to conduct the MHS Fight Song, Rams Fall in Line,” said Ivan Pour, director of Instrumental Music at Maricopa High School.
