WEST NEWBURY – Superintendent Justin Bartholomew, Principal Jonathan Seymour, and Director of Jazz and Bands David Schumacher are pleased to share that a Pentucket Regional High School junior will participate in Massachusetts Music Educators’ Association (MMEA) All-State Concert.
Chaney Goldstein of Bradford was one of just five saxophone players from the state chosen for the All-State Jazz Band from among 25 students who were selected to audition. Goldstein and the All-State Jazz Band will perform at Boston’s Symphony Hall on Saturday, March 4. The concert also features performances by the All-State Choir, Orchestra, and Concert Band.
“It has been a pleasure to see Chaney develop his musical talents,” said Director Schumacher. “We are very proud of all he has accomplished and cannot wait to see him perform with the All-State Jazz Band!”
The Massachusetts Music Educators’ Association is a member of the National Association for Music Education, among the world’s largest arts education organizations and the voice of music education in the United States.
“Chaney’s acceptance into the All-State Concert is extremely well-deserved. He is a passionate and dedicated young musician, and it is wonderful to see that all of his hard work is being recognized,” Superintendent Bartholomew said.
Tickets can be purchased at the Symphony Hall Box Office at www.bso.org or by calling 1-888-266-1200.
