MUSIC IN THE PARKS FESTIVAL



The Newfield HS Chorus, Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble competed at the Music In The Parks Festival in Williamsburg, Virginia on May 3-4, 2014.  The performing ensembles from Newfield walked away with some very distinguished awards.  The HS Chorus won first place and received a superior rating as well as the second highest score among the 20 or so competing vocal groups.  The Concert Band placed third among a number of competitors.   Their competitors came from state such as Alabama, Virginia, Maine and North Carolina.  The Concert Band received a rating of excellent from the adjudicators.  The Newfield HS Jazz Band also won first place in competition, and they received a rating of good.  Each of the ensembles from Newfield looked very professional on the stage and gave performances that our district can be very proud of.  All weekend long the students were wonderful ambassadors to our school.  Their behavior on the bus, at the hotel, at the competition, at Busch Gardens and Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was exemplary.   It was an honor to have been a chaperone to such a wonderful group!  So when you see Sharon Powell or Alex McDonald MacDonald, please extend to them a hearty “congratulations” or take the time to send them a quick congratulatory e-mail.  Also, if you run into any of the students in those performing ensembles congratulate them on a job well done!
