Concord-Carlisle musicians excel at state auditions

December 1, 2022

Musicians from Concord- Carlisle High School’s bands, choirs and orchestras attended the Massachusetts Music Educators Association’s (MMEA) Eastern District Senior Festival Auditions at Milton High School. Students who elected to participate spent several months preparing for these auditions.

Out of the 853 students that auditioned from the 30 cities and towns in our district, only 442 were accepted. The top 50 percent of those accepted students receive a recommendation to audition for the MMEA All-State Concert Festival.

Students accepted to the festival will attend a full-day rehearsal followed by a concert at Boston Latin School along with their peers from schools across MMEA’s Eastern District. At the festival, students will work with a talented guest conductor and perform a rigorous concert program. The concert is on Saturday, January 7th in the Boston Latin HS Auditorium and is open to the public.

The CCHS Music Department is incredibly proud of these students and their holistic approach to the audition: focusing on the experience, the opportunity for personal growth, and the journey over destination and outcome.
