Music and Excelling in School

May 21, 2011

All State Music Festival continues

This post is taken from the website and submitted there by Sam Moore Young

The correlation between participation in music and excelling academically is on display at the All State Music Festival on the Gorham campus of USM.

Poland Regional High School students Ben Albee and Tyler Myers are prime examples.  Myers, singing bass in the All State Chorus, is the salutatorian of his graduating class. Albee, playing trombone in the All State Orchestra, is also an honor student and will be Master of Ceremonies at graduation.

There are many students at the MMEA All State Music Festival who are the top students at their schools including Kaitlyn Kinsey, playing flute in the All State Band, who is Valedictorian of her class at Fort Fairfield High School.
