Quoting Mr. Jason Caron, HHS Performing Arts teacher and Band Director:

    We've got more great news about further student achievements in music.

 This past Saturday, our seven HHS student musicians who qualified to audition for the 2014 Massachusetts All-State Music Festival completed their auditions at Shrewsbury High School. The results are in!

 SIX of our seven students have been selected to participate, and again, I think this may be a record number for Hudson High School.  

They are:

 Buren Andrews - Grade 10 - Tenor - All State Festival Chorus

Edward Andrews - Grade 11 - Bass - All State Festival Chorus

Taylor Benson - Grade 11 - Bass - All State Festival Chorus

Brooke Mega - Grade 12 - Alto - All State Festival Chorus

Andrew Nugent - grade 12 - Tenor - All State Festival Chorus

 Andrew Doherty Munro - Grade 11 - Clarinet - All State Festival Concert Band

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Once the students confirm their participation (and pay their fees), they will be preparing for three days of intensive rehearsals coinciding with the MA Music Educators' Association Annual Conference, held March 20-22, 2014.   The students' work will culminate in a concert performance at Symphony Hall, Boston, MA.

 A big "shout out" also goes to our seventh auditionee, Katie Benson (Grade 11, percussion);  though she was not accepted to the Festival, it was only by a margin of 16 points.
