The Falmouth High School Music Department is proud to announce the student musicians selected to perform at the annual Junior and Senior Southeast District Music Festivals, Massachusetts All-State Music Festival, and UMass Honors Band Festival. The festivals admit exceptional instrumentalists and vocalists to perform in various honors ensembles based on the results of an audition, which includes a rehearsed piece, musical scales, and the “sight-reading” of new music.
Students accepted to the Junior Southeast Music Festival are instrumentalist Robert Taft and John Turner and vocalist Nell Byrne, Olivia McKnight and Vera Shipunova,
Students accepted to the Senior Southeast Music Festival include instrumentalists Joe Bergeron, Hunter Engstrom, Sarah McBride, Corinne McGillicuddy*, Sam McNichol, Kurran Singh*, and Cyrus Twombly and vocalists Jacob Carl*, Jessica Edgar*, Liam Gregory, Daniel Morrison, Connor Moulton and Sean Quinn. Those students with an asterisk after their names were also accepted to the Massachusetts All-State Music Festival.
The following students were selected to perform with musicians throughout the New England and Northeast at the UMass Honors Band Festival: Callie Donahue, Alex Lanoue, Becky Hopkins, Marysia Moskal, Molly Lemay, Meghan Adams, Ashley Sheehy, and Kathleen Toner.
These students have demonstrated excellence through hours of practice both during school as well as at home. They bring credit to themselves, their music teachers, and their parents who encourage them to continue with their music education.
