On March 19th, the New England Music Festival held its 89th annual concert at Gilford High School, NH. The performance featured high school instrumental and choral students from around New England.
ConVal High School’s Beck Lorimer, percussionist, won an audition with a convincing score and was accepted to the festival. He performed with the concert band in challenging literature, including Tichelli’s Blue Shades and Holst’s Second Suite in F.
The New England Music Festival offers students an adjudicated performance opportunity for instrumental solos, as well as vocal solos and ensembles. Through their outstanding evaluations in one of those Solo & Ensemble Festivals, New England’s most gifted music students are invited to join together in the New England Band, Chorus and Orchestra at the three day Concert Festival, which is hosted annually by a regional high school.
