8 Middle School Singers Selected
For the 2018 Massachusetts Music Educators Association (MMEA)
All-State Treble Chorus!
The Chelmsford Schools Fine and Performing Arts Department is proud to announce that 8 students from Chelmsford were selected to be part of this year’s Massachusetts Music Educator’s Association (MMEA) All State Treble Chorus! The All State Treble Chorus showcases the talent of some of the state’s youngest singers. This program is offered by the MMEA as an enrichment opportunity providing a musical experience to talented young people. Participating students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their artistry and to create new friendships.
Auditions for the Chorus were open to students in grades 4-6 whose teachers are members of MMEA, and audition recordings were submitted online. All of the CPS student applicants prepared for auditions with Choral Teacher Jodi Richardson.
The students who were accepted to the festival will rehearse with guest conductors and then perform in a concert at the annual MMEA Conference in Boston on Saturday, March 3, 2018. Dr. Janet Galván, Director of Choral Activities at Ithaca College, will be the conductor of this year’s All State Treble Chorus.
