Canton Headteachers are pleased to announce that 15 student musicians – 13 from Canton High School and two from Galvin Middle School – have been invited to perform at this year’s Southeast District Festivals presented by Massachusetts Music Educators Association.
Participation in either of the District Festivals—Junior Districts Grades 7-9 and Senior Districts Grades 10-12—is a prestigious honor determined by a live audition. Both events consist of two days of rehearsal followed by a concert.
Junior Districts will be held March 11-12 at Scituate High School and will include the following Canton musicians: (choir) Elizabeth Silvasy, Grade 7, soprano; (group) Tyler Goldowsky, Grade 9, trumpet, and Anthony Wang, Grade 9, trumpet; (orchestra) Sonia Le, Grade 9, bass, and Timothy Tseng, Grade 7, violin.
Senior Districts are scheduled for April 8-9 at Brockton High School and will feature choir members Antoine Aoun, Grade 12, tenor; Adam Clyve, Grade 12, tenor; Atlas Curran-Barker, Grade 11, tenor; Azaliah McFarlane-Decordova, Grade 12, soprano; Amanda Pagel, Grade 12, viola; Caleb Wolf, Grade 12, tenor; band members Rosalyn Grady, Grade 10, flute; Clara Lipson, Grade 12, flute; and orchestra members Derek Mar, Grade 10, violin; and Christopher Pho, Grade 12, violin.
Five students – Aoun, Curran-Barker, Grady, Lipson and Pho – also received scores that qualified them to audition for MMEA All-State Festival ensembles, and two of them, Aoun and Curran-Barker, were chosen for this prestigious honor and will perform at Symphony Hall on March 5.
“District festivals are a great opportunity for our performing arts students to work with instructors and students from across the region and state,” said Catherine Eckersley, K-12 Performing Arts Coordinator. 12th year. “We are so proud of all of our students who have worked hard to prepare for their auditions, and we look forward to seeing them perform at their respective district festivals. We are also thrilled for Antoine and Atlas, who were selected for the All-State Festival. These are significant achievements for all of our students and demonstrate their talent and hard work.
