[ccfic caption-text format="plaintext"]

On Saturday, January 20, students from the Wellesley High School Music Department auditioned for the All-State Music Ensembles at Shrewsbury High School. Students qualified for these auditions by scoring in the top half of the Eastern District Auditions held in November. The musicians auditioned with approximately 950 students from across Massachusetts for one of the positions in the All-State ensembles.

This year, 10 students from Wellesley High School were selected to participate based on their audition. Being a member of these ensembles is the highest honor for a high school music student in Massachusetts.

The All-State Festival is sponsored by the Massachusetts Music Educators Association (MMEA) and will be held March 1-3rd. Students selected will rehearse for two days in Boston before performing at historic Symphony Hall in Boston on Saturday, March 3, at 2:00 p.m.
