Haley will perform with other accomplished high school musicians in the regional music festival the weekend of January 6 and 7. She will audition for the statewide festival later this month for the opportunity to perform in March at the MMEA All State Festival in Westford, MA, and then at Symphony Hall in Boston with the most accomplished high school players from across Massachusetts.
A student of the flute since she was 10 years old, Haley has audtioned and performed in the SEMMEA music festival in each of her high school years. The 18-year-old first picked up the flute eight years ago.
GLCPS music teacher and Band Director Don Richard shared the exciting news with the GLCPS community.
"I am absolutely thrilled and truly thankful that in this small school in New Bedford, I have the privilege of working with one of the most talented high school musicians in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts," Mr. Richard said.
