June Updates

Students and Parents:

We are nearing the end of a fantastic school year!  There are many news items for you as we wrapup the school year and head towards summer break.

Spring Concert Wrapup:  Congratulations to all the Mashpee Middle and High School musicians on two fantastic spring concerts!  We had many outstanding performers and soloists.  The talent was very evident and the future is very bright for our music program. 

Hall Of Fame Class of 2014:  This year I have started a new tradition.  A new hall of fame was created to honor graduating seniors who have been involved in the vocal music program all four years of their high school careers.  These outstanding leaders have been involved in a variety of extracurricular activities including, vocal jazz/acappella, musicals, coffeehouse, cabaret night, etc
This year we had three inductees including: Kayla Burnell, Kylie Laue, and Alexis Pascal

Additionally a four year senior award was given to Hailee Frye for her four-year involvement in Mashpee Choirs!

Website Updates:  Please visit all the tabs/links on this website as they have all been updated with information for next year!

2014-2015 Calendar:  The calendar for next year is finished and posted on the calendar tab above as well as outside the chorus room.  Some of the events are still tentative however and this calendar will change as further updates are made available.

New Changes and Developments:  There will be more information to come; however, we have several exciting changes taking place as we continue to evolve and progress toward an even higher standard of excellence. 

These changes and developments include:
 -- Rooms C119 and C120 will be converted into full size practice rooms
