SFPS Music Performance Assessment Honorable Achievements

By SFPS 

Santa Fe Public Schools’ Band, Choir, and String Orchestra ensembles recently performed in the New Mexico Music Educators’ Association Music Performance Assessment. SFPS proudly acknowledges music directors and their students, representing ensembles from every SFPS K-8 school, middle school, and both large high schools. According to Leanne DeVane, Music Education Coordinator, “Music Performance Assessment embodies intensive study in musical skill development, music academics and music literacy, as well as the ability to render musical performances in an artistic manner.”
