Osceola Creek Middle School’s bands recently competed at the Florida Bandmasters Association Concert MPA.
The concert band, under the direction of Andrew Aldoretta, received straight Superior ratings from the stage judges, as well as a Superior in sight-reading at the event held in March at John I. Leonard High School. Osceola Creek was the only school at the event to receive all Superior ratings. The symphonic band, also under the direction of Aldoretta, followed the concert band’s lead and received straight Superior ratings both on stage and in sight-reading. The symphonic band also received grades of “A” in every category possible.
Aldoretta created the band program at Osceola Creek when the school opened 12 years ago and leads the symphonic, concert and jazz bands.
