This past weekend, Chamber Orchestra attended the ASTA National Orchestra Festival. They received Excellent Scores from all judges, which is second to Superior.  Please congratulate them on a job well done!  They put in countless hours in order to prepare for this festival, and they represented MMHS well.  This is the first time a MMHS Orchestra has even attempted to make it to nationals, and I am so proud of how far they've come!!
