Carlisle students perform at MICCA Solo and Ensemble Festival
Fifteen small ensembles or soloists from the Carlisle Public School participated in the Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors Association (MICCA) Solo and Ensemble Festival on Saturday, May 8, at Concord-Carlisle High School. This festival is an opportunity for students to perform either a solo or a group piece in front of an adjudicator for constructive comments and a rating. It is a wonderful learning experience. We are thrilled to announce that the Carlisle students received four gold medals, nine silver medals and two bronze medals for their performances. Congratulations to all the students who participated:
• Celeste Balboni, Monica Chen and Tori Forelli; vocal trio
In addition, many former Carlisle students participated in the Solo and Ensemble Festival. Congratulations to Julia Brem, Bo Graham and Alex Kinmonth who received Gold medals and have been asked to participate in the Honors Concert this Saturday, May 15, at Follen Church in Lexington, beginning at 2 p.m. ∆
