Two WHS students were accepted to the Connecticut Valley District Music Festival, which took place at Hartford High School the last weekend of January. Chorus student Josh Delaney had a productive two days of learning from conductor Sherrill Blodget of Castleton State College. Josh shared tips on warmups and vocal technique in his chorus class. Jazz Band member Parker Eastman had a wonderful time working with Dr. Alexander Stewart, professor of Jazz studies and Ethnomuicology at the University of Vermont, and the other members of the District Jazz Band.
Parker was featured in Big Dipper by Thad Jones after earning a solo for the performance.
Congratulations to Josh and Parker!
