Want to hear some great live music? Love to see student performers? Come on out to the MUSD Music-a-Thon V from 3-8 p.m. on May 4.
“The Music-a-Thon is an event we look forward to every year that showcases all the hard work the students put forth,” Tanya Hobt, music director at Maricopa Wells Middle School, said. “We are very fortunate to have such talented students that work tirelessly all year for this event. The music programs in the Maricopa Unified School District continue to grow every year, and we love to perform and share the music with our wonderful community.”
Music-a-Thon is a yearly event that features all of the bands and orchestra from Grades 6-12 in MUSD. This event will feature over 300 students in seven bands and three orchestras, 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 Middle School, said, “We are in our fifth year of this event and it has become a must see for music fans and our community. The beauty and power of our students performers in combined Band and Orchestra cannot be matched.”
The conclusion of this year’s concert will be the Maricopa High School Fight Song, Rams Fall in Line, conducted by Maricopa Unified School District’s own superintendent, Dr. Tracey Lopeman.
“We’re excited to show what MUSD Music can do, as well as invite our yearly special guest to see our programs and conduct our students,” said Ivan Pour, director of instrumental music at Maricopa High School.
