Seven Northwest Catholic student-musicians will be performing as members of the Connecticut Music Educators Association’s Northern Region ensembles. Kyle Brooks ’15 of Avon will perform in the Band, while Kevin Kearns ’16 of Simsbury will perform in the Jazz Band. Katharine Jessen ’17 of Winsted, Sarah Jessen ’17 of Winsted, and Ying Jiang ’16 of West Hartford will all perform in the Orchestra. Emily Driscoll ’17 of Avon and Ryan Sands ’15 of Avon will sing in the Choir.

Director of Instrumental Music Daniel Luddy ’03 is thrilled with the students’ achievements. “These musicians are all-conference,” he said. “Participating in regional ensembles allows them to sing or play in larger groups with other exceptional players. The conductors are typically high-profile, and the performance experience is invaluable.”

The CMEA Northern Region High School Festival will take place at New Britain High School on January 17, 2015.

Since 1961, Northwest Catholic’s mission has been to educate the whole person: mind, body, spirit, and soul.
