Students Excel at the 89th Annual All-State Music Festival

On May 5th-7th, the 89th Annual All-State Music Festival took place in the town of Swanton, VT at Missisquoi Valley Union High School. Three students from VUHS participated. (Emma Gardner was accepted to the Festival Chorus, but was unable to attend.) Congratulations to Kyra Duggento, who sang in the Festival Chorus, and to Nora Hubbard and Eva Kamman, who played in the Festival Band. Students rehearsed challenging music for long hours over the three days, enriching their musical skills and knowledge with outstanding conductors who challenged them, but with humor and positive encouragement. The All State Chorus, Band and Orchestra performed in the Festival Concert on Saturday, May 7th. The audience jumped to their feet for standing ovations and thunderous applause for all ensembles, as the performances were spectacular. We are so proud of our VUHS students who participated in the 89th Vermont All State Music Festival. Bravo! Check out a picture of the whole All-State Festival Chorus here.
