YMS Band

Earlier in the year, YMS Music Students auditioned to participate in the MMEA District I Grades 7 & 8 Honors Music Festival. Over the last few months students rehearsed and perfected their music after school and during teacher preps. On Friday 3/3, band students spent the day working with other talented musicians from Southern Maine at the Sanford Auditorium under the direction of Dr. Philip Edelman, University of Maine, who was their conductor. Choral students rehearsed under the direction of Maestro Drew Alber. Due to weather restrictions, Saturday 3/4 was cancelled! The silver lining is that managers made the tough decision to cancel on Friday. So, at the end of the day they put on an amazing performance despite the difficult conditions. Mr. Neel and Mrs. Etter cannot be more proud of students for their shared talent, dedication and quest for perfection. Bravissimo!
