Now that Marshall Simonds’ students have settled in, music teachers Andrew Mullen and Marcia Medvitz have begun to hold auditions for the school’s Select Chorus and Symphonic Band. Students across all grade levels turned up to see if they would make the cut, with some eager and others anxious to audition before their teachers.

Mr. Mullen conducted the Select Chorus auditions while Mrs. Medvitz held Symphonic Band Auditions. Prospective student musicians lined the halls outside of the music rooms, assembling their instruments, warming up, and getting some last-minute practice in before their auditions. When auditions concluded at the end of the day on Monday, dozens of students had come by to try out, with some students even auditioning for both Select Chorus and Symphonic Band. Marshall Simonds Middle School would like to thank all of the students that came to audition and wish another great year to this year’s Select Chorus and Symphonic Band members!

We did not receive any notifications re the Special Chorus auditions. My son would’ve liked to have auditioned. He said he knew absolutely nothing about this. He is signed up for 6th grade Chorus. Were notices sent out to parents? If so, none came to our house. How can my son audition?

Thank you,
Anna Singer

Hi Anna,

The Select Chorus auditions have been promoted on the morning announcements for the past week. If your son would still like to audition for Select Chorus, he should talk to Mr. Mullen in the Music Department.
