On November 17, over 1100 music students from public and private schools across the Northeastern part of Massachusetts auditioned for the 2019 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, 28 of which were from Chelmsford High School. These students will perform at a concert in Wakefield, MA on Saturday, January 12.  In addition to having these 28 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, 13 band, chorus, and orchestra students received an All-State recommendation!  “We are so proud of the commitment of the students who auditioned and were accepted into this festival. Students work for years to be able to perform and succeed at this level, and participating in this event is a real honor for them,” commented Fine and Performing Arts Coordinator Christina Whittlesey.
