Check back for performance details. This popular concert also showcases the talented MHS Concerto - Aria winners.

It is important for all students to come to these performances. Students should have told coaches, bosses, etc. already about these concerts to avoid conflicts. This is a chance for us to all show families some of the learning we have done over the past few months and every absent member diminishes the experience for all, both on stage and in the audience.
