Northeast Junior District Festival

February 6, 2019 —CHELMSFORD HIGH SCHOOL

This year, many of Chelmsford’s band, chorus, and orchestra students have worked diligently with their ensemble and private lesson teachers to prepare for state-level music events, including the MMEA’s Northeast District Junior District Festival. The talent and drive of these students is consistently demonstrated through the sheer numbers of students who are accepted each year, and this year has produced another crop of successful auditions!

After auditions of approximately 1,000 students from more than 95 public and private schools held on February 2, students from grades seven through nine were selected to participate in the prestigious Massachusetts Music Educators Association Northeastern Junior District Festival. The program is offered by the MMEA as an enrichment opportunity providing a musical experience to dedicated young musicians. The students were selected to perform in the Junior District Concert Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra, Girls Chorus, and Boys Chorus. They will rehearse with guest conductors and then perform in a concert to be held at Galvin Middle School in Wakefield, MA on March 30.

This year, 35 students from Chelmsford High School, McCarthy Middle School and Parker Middle School in Chelmsford have been selected to participate in the MMEA Northeast Junior District Festival!
