Prairie Bands Receive Superior Ratings

9th Grade Concert Band

On Saturday, May 4, over 200 students representing Prairie High School and Prairie Point 9th Grade Academy participated in the annualI.H.S.M.A. State Large Group Music Festival held at Washington High School in Cedar Rapids.

We are excited and proud to announce that all three of our concert bands (Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, and 9th Grade Concert Band) were awarded with DIVISION-I “SUPERIOR” RATINGS from the adjudicators.  This marks only the 3rd time in the past 9 years that all three of our concert bands have earned the state’s top rating.  For Wind Symphony it marks the 32nd time in the past 33 years to be awarded this distinction!
