Our Band program has been exceptionally strong for many years at MCA. Our Band Conductor/Instructor, Mr. Jonathan Hidalgo, is a well-qualified conductor, coming from Moody Bible Institute's Music Program. Our band program is available to all students 4th through 8th grades, and includes several hours of rehearsals, orchestra practice, as well as individual instruction. Most band programs are extremely costly, yet MCA continues to provide this service to its students for around $3 per hour of instruction! There are three levels of band performers at MCA - beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Each level performs at our MCA Christmas and Spring Concerts. In addition to our concerts, some students desire to perform at the annual ACSI Band Festival at Olivet-Nazarene University. This festival typically includes instruction from some of the top conductors in the area, and allows students to perform with over 200 other middle school musicians.
