2012 Music Performance Adjudication

Wind Ensemble received a SUPERIOR rating in level VI at the Music Performance Adjudication at Heritage HS.

Concert Band received a STRAIGHT SUPERIOR rating in level IV at the Music Performance Adjudication at Heritage HS.

We’re very proud of their accomplishment.

This marks the 6th time in school history that an HSHS Band has received a Superior Rating and the first time two bands have accomplished this feat in the same year.

Equally impressive with both ensembles were the comments they received about their professional demeanor. Good things are happening at Holly Springs, and we have some awesome kids.

Special thanks to our administration and all of our faculty and staff who support the accomplishments of our students, and allow us to do what we do.
