MPA 22 Facebook cover2022 MPA Season

COVID-19 Guidelines

We're excited to be back to in-person shows for the 2022 MPA season! With everyone's health and safety in mind, we are following the mask requirements of show venues that have them. Please carefully check each event page to see whether that venue requires masks for spectators. All spectators are expected to follow the venue's rules to ensure a successful and fun event for all. 

Live Stream of the Shows

We are offering a virtual live stream option for each regular-season MPA show this year. We will do our best to have the live stream up and running, but because different show venues might have Wi-Fi and other limitations, the live stream might go down once in a while. If that happens, please refresh our YouTube page and try again. 

Because we cannot guarantee the live stream for each regular-season show will always be up, we are making it free. But we are accepting and encouraging donations. All donations will go to that show's host group and MPA. 

Thank you for considering donating for this service and helping the show host and MPA!

Programs

Please note only some shows will have printed show programs available this year, and those may be for sale. A free show program (PDF) will be available for every show here: https://www.minnesotapercussionassociation.org/index.php/2022-events/2022-show-programs.html.

MPA is excited to bring the 2020 Minnesota Percussion Association Day of Percussion to Lakeville South High School on Saturday, January 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.!

Plus, members of these and other percussion ensembles from the area will join our MPA students for the Saturday morning and afternoon clinics and concerts!

Special thanks to the Lakeville South High School band department for its support of the 2020 Day of Percussion! And a huge thanks to the Percussive Arts Society Minnesota Chapter for their support, along with all the corporate sponsors who are helping to make this event possible!
