News from the Music Program

Song Grams are coming! Select Chorus members are cooking up some great new arrangements and look forward to selling them for Valentines Day as a field-trip fundraiser.

Wyatt Bandy-Page, Sara Paige and Matthew Taylor had a great experience at the Western District Festival at UMass earlier this month. Matt Taylor has been accepted to the All-State Chorus and will head to Boston in March to sing at Symphony Hall before his trip to the All-Eastern Festival in April. Congratulations, Matt!

Be sure to visit the Music Program Open House during the Mohawk Open House on March 9th for an interactive sampling of our offerings. Hear the Select Chorus, have a free guitar mini-lesson, see all of our music spaces and talk to the students about their experiences in music at Mohawk.
