Shrewsbury – According to the Shrewsbury School Music Department, the following Shrewsbury High School (SHS) students were selected for and participated in the Massachusetts Music Educators Association (MMEA) 2009 All-State Music Festival:

Chorus: Priyasha Chaturvedi, Brendon Freeman, Elizabeth Hepp, Erica Johnson, Ida Khojandpour, Eric Maxwell, Ryan Parshigian, Nick Porter, Hannah Rubin and Emily Suuberg;

Band: Ruby Lee;

Jazz Band: Mike Burns and Edward Smongeski; and

Orchestra: Kevin Chen and Nicole Peltier.

These students rehearsed in Boston March 26 and 27 with approximately 400 other All- State honorees and performed a concert at Symphony Hall March 28.

In addition, Annie Moriondo, a junior at SHS, received a commendation for her original vocal composition based on the poem "In Flanders Field." Original compositions were submitted from student composers throughout the commonwealth. Last year, Moriondo's original duet for cello and viola "Window" was recognized at the convention.

"We are proud of the accomplishments and work ethic of these young, talented musicians," said Bonnie Narcisi-Gorey, director of music for Shrewsbury Public Schools.
