Berklee 2014 Wrapup

Congratulations to all the student performers in the Mashpee High School Jazz Band and Jazz Choir on fantastic performances at the 2014 Berklee High School Jazz Festival.  It was an exciting day for all involved, and provided an opportunity to perform for a wide variety of people and judges.  The judges had many positive comments as well as critique to help improve for the future.

For the jazz choir, I want to say how proud I am of all the hard work you all have put in.  This was a great learning experience, and we will look to continue to improve and build on our results this year.

A special congratulations go out to Maria Costa and Jeff Demanche on receiving Judges' Choice Awards!

Great job everyone -- and finally thank you to all the parents who came out to support the ensembles!

Stay tuned for a brand new Mashpee Music Department Youtube Channel - coming soon
