36 Brockton Public Schools Students Named to Southeastern Junior District Festival

Thirty-six Brockton Public Schools musicians in grades 7-9 were selected to participate in the Massachusetts Music Educators Southeastern Junior District Music Festival following auditions at the Furnace Brook Middle School in Marshfield on Saturday, December 2. The students will join hundreds of their peers to perform in the March festival.

On November 18, 29 Brockton High School students were named to the Southeastern Senior District Music Festival, bringing the total number of festival invitations in fall 2023 to 65.

“This is the level of musicianship that is expected of Brockton students when they attend auditions or participate in competitions,” said Rebecca Desmond, Music Director K-12. “To make this accomplishment all the more impressive, Saturday was the first time that many of the students performed in a solo audition.”
