Three MS Students Accepted to CJMEA MS Honors Band

Congratulations to Matthew Dupree '25, Aidan Neill '25 and Desmond Pepe '25 on their acceptance into the Central New Jersey Music Educators Middle School Honors Band for 2020. These students auditioned for the festival by preparing and performing an etude, major scales, and a sight-reading example. This opportunity was available to students enrolled in the band for grades seven and eight.  
The festival will take place on Saturday, March 28th at Steinert High School in Hamilton Township, NJ.  The students will practice, rehearse, and perform three pieces for a packed audience.  
"I'm so proud of these three students and I'm excited to see the students who were accepted perform on March 28th," John Propper, All-School Band Director.
