NRMS band rocks at state festival

North Rockford Middle School’s (NRMS) eighth-grade band took top honors at the Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association’s state festival on April 23 at Big Rapids High School.

“The kids were amazing,” said NRMS band director Cullen McCarthy. “This is the band’s fourth straight superior Division I rating at a festival. They received superior ratings at both district and state festivals last year in seventh grade, too.”

The band received superior Division I ratings across the board from all three concert judges as well as the sight-reading judge. They qualified for the state festival by receiving a superior Division I rating at the district level in February.

“The students performed wonderfully and we all had a great time,” said McCarthy. “They are very talented and motivated students and I love working with them.”
