The annual All-State Conference features as many as 120 teacher workshops, several concert hours and casual concerts, and is attended by more than 800 music educators and 500 of Massachusetts' top student musicians performing band, orchestral, jazz or choral repertoire.
The Franklin High School students selected to the All-State Orchestra are: Christopher Broyles - Viola, Chai Harsha - Viola, Emma Kucich- Flute. Lauren Dennett performed Clarinet with the All State Concert Band and Jenna VanHyning performed with the All State Chorus.
"The all-state experience is a chance for some of our advanced players to surround themselves with the best student musicians in the state," said Diane Plouffe, Director of Music. "The audition process alone exposes students to other local musicians outside of the Franklin Public Schools who are striving for musical excellence and achievement in their community and school. We are proud of all of our students."
