Congratulations to Jacob Lanoue for being selected by audition as a MEMBER of the Portland Youth Wind Ensemble and Portland Youth Orchestra. Students from all over Southern Maine (and some students travel from even further) audition to become involved in these honors ensembles. There is no age minimum to audition, however both groups are made up of primarily high school students. Both groups rehearse and perform throughout the year at USM- under the director of USM’s orchestra and wind ensemble conductors.
It is a great honor for Jacob to be selected…especially as an 8th grader. Being selected for the both the band and orchestra means that he is among the best trombonists in all of Southern Maine! We now have three Massabesic students in the Portland Youth Ensembles.
The following students received recognition for their hard work/improvement at the June 4,2008 banquet. Additionally, band, chorus, jazz band, and chamber music participants received certificates of participation.
