News from the Music Department

Joe Marinilli was one of 22 trumpet players accepted to the Boston Crusaders Drum Corps. Over 200 students age 16-21 auditioned at Boston, Florida and Texas locations over two weekends in early December for a spot in the world class drum corps. Joe will attend a series of camps in Florida before beginning a three month summer tour of competition and exhibition all over the US and some locations in Canada culminating in an opportunity to perform in the Drum Corps International world championship.  Congratulations!

Ten students from MHS were selected by audition to perform in the 2013 Massachusetts All State Music Festival.  They auditioned on Saturday, December 15th, at Shrewsbury High School, competing against students from all across Massachusetts.  The festival will take place the last weekend of February  (which is also the first weekend of March).  The culminating performance will be at Boston's Symphony Hall.
