On March 17th, all three Freedom High School choirs attended NC Large Ensemble Music Performance Adjudication (MPA) in Gastonia, NC. All three choirs received Superior (I) ratings, which is the first time in Freedom school history that three choirs attended Large Ensemble MPA in the same year and received all Superior ratings. Concert Choir, a primarily 9th grade choir, performed Sing, O Sing (Perry) and Die Nachtigall (Mendellsohn/Robinson) in Grade IV and received an overall score of 90. 

Chamber Singers, an advanced mixed group of 10th-12th graders, performed in the highest grade of high school MPA, Grade VI, with Ave Verum Corpus (Byrd) and Veniki (Rubstov) and received an overall score of 96. The only other time a choir from FHS received a Superior in Grade VI music was in 1985.

Women’s Choir, an intermediate group of 10th-12th grade females, performed A Girl’s Garden (Thompson) and Laudate Dominum (Porterfield) and received an overall score of 95.
