Aroostook Chorus Festival

December 13, 2013

Ashland Community School

In the words of veteran music educator, Ed Boynton:

Under the direction of Jay Nelson, All Aroostook High School Chorus

The All Aroostook Chorus Festival was held at the beautiful Ashland Community School last week, December 6 & 7.  It was one of the most outstanding musical concerts I have heard in a very long time. Conductor for the Middle school chorus was Dana Ross from RSU #22 and the high school conductor was the County’s own Jay Nelson, vocal instructor in the Presque Isle system.

“There was a time I thought music was dying in The County, but if we leave up to our young people, music will always flourish.” ~Ed Boynton, Music Instructor, Valley Rivers Middle School, Community High School, Fort Kent.
