Three of Hull High School’s music students recently auditioned, virtually, for the Southeastern District Senior Music Festival. After about a week of waiting for the results, the news arrived that they would participate in the (virtual) festival next month.
The students had to video-record themselves and then submit their videos to their music teacher, Ian Barkon, before they were finally uploaded to the Southeastern District festival website where adjudicators were able to access the videos and score them.
HHS senior Maeve Donohue, a trumpet player, passed her audition and received an All- State recommendation for the third year in a row. She will be seated in the Senior District Band.
Senior Bianca Foresta, also a trumpet player and a vocalist, passed her audition to become the first alto singer in 30 years to represent Hull in the Senior District Chorus.
And senior Robert Hunter, a saxophone player, piano player, and vocalist, succeeded in becoming the first tenor singer in 30 years to represent Hull in the Senior District Chorus.
The three students will represent Hull at next year’s virtual music festival, in early January. A virtual concert will be held at a later date.
