This past Friday and Saturday, March 24 and March 25, seniors Lauren Zaremba, Sean Vo and junior Erin Field went to Durfee High School in Fall River to represent the Rockland Music Department at the Senior SEMSBA (Southeastern Massachusetts School Bandmasters Association) Music Festival. Zaremba performed as part of concert band on tenor saxophone, while Field and Vo performed as part of the choir, soprano and tenor respectively.

While rehearsing with the choir conductor, Field and Vo learned a new and valuable lesson: to have your “heart on fire, mind on ice,” which was exactly quoted from the conductor Mr. Jeremy Young. The wise and final words of Mr. Young before the choir headed out to perform inspired each and every member. All in all, SEMSBA reminded seniors of the friendships they made through music and through festivals such as this one.
