Chelmsford Public Schools Music Students
Selected to Perform With
John Philip Sousa National High School Honors Band
This summer, many Chelmsford Public Schools student musicians are continuing to perform in local, state, and even international music events. Six of these students recently participated in the John Philip Sousa National High School Honors Band, a highly selective, nationally renowned ensemble. Chelmsford had the highest number of students from any school district selected to participate in this ensemble. This year’s conductor of the John Philip Sousa National High School Honors Band was Col. Jason Fettig, Director of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band of Washington, D.C. Members of the UMass Amherst Marching Band and its staff under the direction of Dr. Timothy Todd Anderson and Mr. Thom Hannum served as clinicians, staff, and coaches for the event. CPS students who participated in the Honors Band include Natalie Tierney, Michaella Weinbeck, Amy Carey, Ryan Moore, Nathan Morrissey, and Alex Moore. Congratulations to these students, their families, and their music teachers!
