Musical Honors

For a fifth consecutive year, the Westfield Public School District has been named one of the “Best Communities for Music Education” in the nation for its outstanding commitment to music education. The designation is awarded by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. 

Additionally, Edison 8th grader Madeline Yong (violin) and 7th grader Mai Kim (violin) were accepted into the All-State Intermediate Orchestra, while 24 Westfield High School vocalists will perform with the All-State Chorus in the 2022-2023 school year.  

“As a department, the students and staff continued to work through many obstacles this year relating to COVID protocols that challenged the delivery of music education in the traditional sense. To be recognized for the 5th consecutive year by NAMM as a best community for music education further validates all their efforts to provide meaningful, quality experiences,” says Visual and Performing Arts Supervisor Thomas Weber. “Despite all the challenges, our students continue to achieve excellence at the regional and state level, and this year in record numbers!  We appreciate all the faculty, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who have made music education an essential part of a well-rounded education.”

The students who will perform with the All-State Chorus in 2022-2023 are:
