Take note: MHS musicians shine in Boston

Seven Marblehead High School students performed at the New England Conservatory on Jan. 7 as part of the Massachusetts Music Educators’ Association Northeast District Festival. The student musicians passed a competitive audition in November. 

The MHS musicians who sang in the district chorus are: Griffen Collins, Yasen Colon, Mona Gelfgatt, Lani Gilmore, Anya Kane and Brady Weed. Benjamin Soon played the viola in the district orchestra. 

The chorus performed several pieces, including “Jubilate Deo” by Laszlo Halmos, while the orchestra played “Prelude to Die Meistersinger” by Richard Wagner and “Toast of the Town” by Quinn Mason.

Four of the MHS singers —  Collins, Colon, Gelfgatt and Weed — have been invited to audition for all-state chorus on Jan. 21.
