Welcome everyone, my name is Brian Raymond, and I am the new vocal music director for Mashpee High School and Middle School.  In this site, you will find information regarding choral ensembles, rehearsals, auditions, festivals, performances, and more.  There is also a list of videos for each ensemble to the right for you to check out to help you become familiar with the music we are singing this year.  Please check back here often for regular updates -- also you can subscribe to this blog by clicking the link down at the bottom.  I am honored and thrilled to be a part of the music department here at Mashpee Public Schools and look forward to a fantastic school year!

Students: I will be holding practices after school for the upcoming All-Cape Cod and Senior Southeast District music festival auditions starting either the second week of school. Please check back here for schedule/audition information.  Please see me at some point or look for the signup sheet if you are interested in auditioning! 

Also, this year we will be starting a vocal jazz ensemble.  This ensemble will be an exciting opportunity for you to sing a wide range of musical styles including jazz, acapella, rock, and popular music.  Our goal will be to learn and perform challenging and fun arrangements.  Some of these arrangements will feature a rhythm section while others will be acapella.  As we progress, there are several performance opportunities we can potentially be a part of including the Berklee High School Jazz Festival.  There will be an interest sheet posted.  Please see me for more information and help spread the word!!  We will begin 2-3 weeks into the school year.

If you have any questions, please let me know!  My email is :
-- Mr. Raymond
