Into the Woods Audition

Into the Woods

The Leland and Gray Band and Choir

music in the park 1The Leland and Gray Band and Choir traveled to Holyoke on May 3rd for the Music in the Park Festival.  Both groups brought home the high school first place trophies in their respected division. They also won the Best Overall Choir and Concert Band award in the high school bracket.

You should have seen the group's reaction and pride as they carried around four trophies!

Both performances were hands down the best of the year for each group, under the scrutiny of four distinguished judges.  In our humble opinion, this is quite an accomplishment at a National Festival, as compared to where we were with enrollment in band and choir three years ago!

We are very proud of our students in regards to their poise, professional demeanor, and the ability to play/sing under pressure. The most impressive aspect of this performance was that it occurred in a totally foreign environment, in a one and done competition - that's preparation at it's best!

Our heartfelt thanks to Kristina Wright and Mike Harrigan for chaperoning and helping out in countless ways to help facilitate making the day run smoothly. All in all, a fabulous first time experience for Leland and Gray's musicians!

Go Rebel Music Nation!!!! 

Thanks to all of the Leland and Gray staff in your support all year of our music program, allowing us to have extra time with the kids to coordinate this undertaking. The kids benefitted from the experience immensely and will move forward with a new understanding of what a quality music program should be.

Please congratulate the kids on Monday and we will plan on sharing at the assembly!

I had the pleasure of accompanying these wonderful and talented students to the 12th Annual Vermont Junior Iron Chef

Competition at the Champlain Valley Expo, in Essex Junction on Saturday, March 16th.

Mykah Meizis, Teagan Powling and Savannah Lawley represented themselves and their school with grace, poise, and talent.

In a field of 30 school teams, they were selected to receive a well-deserved Mise En Place Award, for their "attention to keeping their work station clean" and "very well organized", "impressive team focus", "very good communication", and "great knife skills."

Several judges spoke to the students individually and one sent an email expressing (to me) to congratulate them on a job well done! Thank you to these exceptional students!

You made me and the school community proud!
