Clubs and Activities
Honors Band and Chorus - Each fall, students from Gorham, Cape Elizabeth, Mahoney, Memorial, Scarborough, Sacopee Valley, Lake Region and Westbrook Middle Schools audition in front of judges for spots in the honors ensembles. Students prepare on their own time and with their music teachers. During the audition, students perform a prepared piece, as well as scales, sight reading, and ear training exercises to determine their level of musicianship. Those accepted into the Honors Band and Chorus receive the festival music before the winter vacation and are expected to learn the music on their own, with the help of their music teachers.
