• CHS Musicians to Perform for the MA Educators Association Northeast District Senior Music Festival

    Chelmsford, MA - In November 2019, over 1100 music students from public and private schools across the Northeastern part of Massachusetts auditioned for the 2020 Northeast Senior District Music Ensembles. Out of this group, approximately 450 students from grades nine through twelve were selected to participate in this prestigious Massachusetts Music Educators Association (MMEA) event, 22 of which were from Chelmsford High School. These students will perform at a concert in Wakefield, MA on Saturday, January 11, 2020.

    In addition to having these 22 students accepted into Senior Districts, students who received a score in the top 50% of their area were eligible to audition for the MMEA All-State Ensembles. This year, 12 band, chorus, and orchestra students received an All-State recommendation!
