BHS Senior District Results (music)

On Saturday, Nov. 14, 143 dedicated music students from Belmont High School traveled to North Andover HS and auditioned for the Massachusetts Music Educators (MMEA) Northeast District Senior Festival. These students were among the 1,127 students from surrounding towns vying for the opportunity to perform in one of the District Honors Ensembles – Band, Chorus, Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble.

Each student worked for months to prepare for their audition, which required a great deal of time, effort and courage. We are proud to announce that sixty-six BHS students were accepted to perform in the Senior District Festival. This matches the all-time high number of acceptances that many of these same students helped establish in 2014. Additionally, thirty-six of the accepted students earned All-State Recommendations, earning them the opportunity to audition for the MMEA All-State Festival in January.
