Band, Chorus, and Orchestra meet during the school day and are non-auditioned groups, meaning any interested Mt. Blue High School students who sing or play a band or orchestra instrument are welcome to participate. At the high school level, there are additional performance-based opportunities, such as state and local honors festivals and auditioned after school ensembles (Chamber Singers, Franklin County Fiddlers, Jazz Band, Mt. Blue Voices). Please read and take note of the audition policy below.
For more information on what is taught in music classes at Mt. Blue High School, please request a copy of the Mt. Blue Regional School District's Music Content Standards & Learning Targets from a music teacher.
