Three Dover-Sherborn High students have been selected to participate in the Massachusetts Music Educators Association Eastern District Senior Festival.
Senior clarinetist Jeffrey Kennan will perform with the District Orchestra, junior vocalist Annabel Hodson-Walker will sing with the District Chorus, and sophomore clarinetist David Kennan will perform with the District Concert Band.
The Senior District Festival will be held on Saturday, January 9 at 1 p.m. at the Boston Latin School.
The District Festivals are extensions of school music programs and are designed to offer students in public, private and parochial schools in Boston and 29 other Eastern Massachusetts cities and towns additional opportunities to rehearse and perform challenging musical compositions with prominent guest conductors.
Students are chosen through competitive auditions. The musicians assemble for the first time on Friday morning, rehearse intensively all day Friday and again on Saturday morning, and conclude with the festival on Saturday afternoon..
All three students also have been invited to audition for the All-State Festival to be held in March.
