  2. What is the focus of the band program at MCHS?
    1. A focus on building unity in the program; a noticeable presence at athletic and community events; high school peer to peer mentoring at the middle school in an effort to grow the high school program; and a push towards preparing students for higher education. Music can be the vehicle to full-scholarships for non-music and music majors.
