Year in Review 2017

Congratulations to the Stoneman Douglas Band Program for making school history, again! All three of our concert bands performed at Broward College’s Bailey Hall to be evaluated at the FBA State Concert MPA…Stoneman Douglas was the only high school in Florida to have THREE bands perform at State MPA! In addition to our 3rd band earning straight Excellent ratings, MSD was the ONLY high school in Florida to have both its top band and 2nd band receive the top rating of Superior from every judge!  As a result, Stoneman Douglas High School was awarded two Otto Kraushaar Awards for a second consecutive year! This is the highest award given by FBA to any high school band program for a perfect record of Superior ratings from every judge at every marching and concert band assessment throughout an entire school year!
