classroom performance ensembles
Band, Chorus, and Orchestra meet during the school day and are non-auditioned groups, meaning any interested Mt. Blue Regional School District student may participate. At the middle school and high school level there are additional performance-based opportunities, such as exploratory ensembles (middle school), state and local honors festivals (middle & high school) and auditioned after school ensembles (high school only - Chamber Singers, Franklin County Fiddlers, Jazz Band, Mt. Blue Voices). Please read and take note of the audition policy below.
