If you noticed Hanover High’s musicians dressed sharply March 1, it’s because they were about to show their stuff in front of music teachers from across the state. The Symphonic Band was invited to take part in the Massachusetts Music Educators Association All-State Conference at the Seaport in Boston. The conference is a gathering of music educators who attend different sessions on best teaching practices. The HHS band was part of a clinic led by Charles Peltz, conductor of the New England Conservatory Wind Ensemble. Working with HHS band director Mr. Harden, Mr. Peltz used the HHS band to demonstrate techniques. The band worked hard to prepare the music performed during the clinic, some of which is part of their repertoire for the MICCA Concert Festival. Their preparation included a class with Mr. Peltz at HHS earlier in the week.
