To ensure MPA is in full compliance with copyright-related laws amid an increasingly tough and uncertain environment for performing arts organizations across the country, the Board of Directors has decided to not post or sell videos of 2016 MPA Championships and beyond for now. We are monitoring the situation and will provide an update when available.
