Congratulations to six HHS band members who have been chosen to participate in the All New England Band Festival at Plymouth State University in November. The student musicians are Zach Sheets, flute; Kevin Dade, flute; Miriam Fiering, oboe; Jahn White, french horn; Aaron Watanabe, euphonium; and Dan Carroll, tuba. These music students will rehearse and perform with others from around New England in a concert with renowned guest conductors.

The festival's invitation says: "These bands will provide a memorable musical and educational experience for the proficient music student. Participants will be chosen on the basis of instrumentation needs, director’s recommendation, past musical achievements, and seniority in school. Acceptance into the Festival Bands is quite competitive."
