Two Medway High School Choir students win seats at the 2022 All-State Music Festival

For immediate release

MEDWAY – Principal John Murray and Choir Director Ashley Nelson-Oneschuk are pleased to announce the selection of two Medway High School Choir students to the All-State Music Festival.

The festival is organized by the Massachusetts Music Educators Association (MMEA), an association of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME).

Olivia Dwyer and Lucas Farlow prepared a piece for a virtual video audition, which took place on January 22. They were notified earlier this month of their selection for the All-State Festival.

Grade 11 Dwyer followed the choir through middle school as well as most of high school. She has also been taking voice lessons since the age of nine and is now part of a recording ensemble. She is also a member of the first executive committee of the Medway High School Choir. This is his first year of participation in the senior districts.

Farlow, 12, was in the choir throughout high school and is a member of the Medway Undertones Chorus this school year. He hopes to be active in singing and musical theater in college. This is Farlow’s first time auditioning for the Senior Districts.

“Congratulations to Olivia and Lucas on being selected for the All-State Music Festival,” Principal Murray said. “It’s an exciting opportunity for them to further develop their skills, as well as meet and work with students with similar interests.”

As part of the Festival, participating students will take part in a full day of rehearsals and then perform with high school choir members from across the state at the MMEA All-State Concert on March 5 at Symphony Hall.

The All-State concert will also include performances by the jazz band, orchestra and symphony band.
