Nine students from Sacred Heart Academy in Hamden, included Trumbull resident, Eunji Lee, class of 2018, with violin, were selected to participate in the Connecticut Music Educator Association (CMEA) Regional Auditions for all state choir, band, and orchestra on Nov. 15 in Milford.

Each year, CMEA judges select the best area musicians on both middle and high school levels. This is done through a multi-layered audition process based on the location of the school.

Students first audition at the Regional Level; Sacred Heart is in the Southern district. Students prepare scales and specific pieces for the audition and are expected to sight read as well.
