Eight Musicians Selected for All State

by Susan Memoli

It is my pleasure to announce that Wayland High School has 8 students who were selected for the 2016 MMEA All State Music Festival!

The auditionees were selected to audition based on their high scores from the Eastern District Senior Festival. The top scoring students from all 5 MA geographic districts auditioned at Shrewsbury High School on 1/23. The audition included a prepared selection, scales and sight reading.

Congratulations to the largest Wayland representation in recent memory! These students will participate in rehearsals March 10-11 in Boston and perform at Symphony Hall on March 12, 2016.
