Brattleboro high school students named to regional ensembles
BRATTLEBORO — Seven student musicians from Brattleboro Union High School have earned acceptance into honors ensembles sponsored by the New England Music Festival Association (NEMFA), the school announced.
The students auditioned for this distinction at the NEMFA Solo and Ensemble Festival, held at Hartford High School in December. The NEMFA Concert Festival was scheduled to take place from March 19-21 in Hanover, N.H., but was canceled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was slated to include about 375 of the most talented high school musicians from throughout New England playing in three ensembles.
BUHS students who were accepted into the NEMFA Chorus included soprano, Ella Aquadra; tenor, Virgil Neddenriep; and basses
Jonah Johnson and Jordan Roach.
Clarinetist Hope Thibault, was accepted into the New England Band. Flutist, Caitlin Sullivan, and timpanist, Sebastian Paquette, were accepted into the orchestra.
This was the third NEMFA acceptance for Paquette, the second for Aquadro and Roach, and the first for Neddenriep, Johnson, Thibault, and Sullivan.
