Twenty students from TMS recently participated in the 11th annual Quinebaug Valley Middle School Music Festival. This year’s festival was held on November 7th and 9th at Putnam Middle School. The QVMSMF was created in 2006 by music teachers in northeastern Connecticut. These educators sought an opportunity for students to perform in an honors group without the pressure of an audition. In place of the audition, students are nominated based on attitude, effort, musicianship, and contributions to their school’s music program. The festival is a collaborative effort of the music teachers from Ashford, Brooklyn, Griswold, Killingly, Plainfield, Pomfret, Putnam, the Rectory School, Thompson, and Woodstock. The band and chorus consisted of almost 100 students each.
Mr. Leclerc would like to congratulate this year’s Thompson Middle School participants! From the band: Katalyna Adams, Emily Carita, Brayden Cutler, Kerrigan LaCasse, Kaitlyn Lamontagne, Alyssa Rice, Hannah Siegmund, Vincent Senecal, and Makayla Tackson.
From the chorus: David Britland, Cole Coderre, Boston Daniels, Keiran Olewnik, Makenzie Radegue, Isabelle Shead, Yalecia Snow, Kaylee Tackson, Nicholas Walker, Lindsey Worster, and Samantha Worster.
