Milford United Percussion participated in the Music Arts Conference (MAC) Competition Finals on Saturday, April 13 at West Hill High School in Stamford and walked away as winners - they are now the MAC Percussion Independent A Class Champions! 

 

The Milford United Percussion Ensemble is a competitive marching performance ensemble based out of Lauralton Hall. This unique group is open to any student from Milford high schools: Lauralton Hall, Jonathan Law, and Foran, and Platt Tech.

The ensemble competes against area schools and independent groups in the Musical Arts Conference (MAC). The group learns a 4-6 minute thematic show utilizing music from traditional, contemporary, Latin, African, and Asian music. It marches an original drill on a standard gym floor. Students have the opportunity to play on various traditional and non-traditional percussion instruments and learn skills in a variety of percussive techniques, movement and dance, musicianship, leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
