NORTH ATTLEBORO — Twenty-six high school students have been selected to participate in district festivals by the Southeastern District of the Massachusetts Music Educators Association.

Their selection means the students are among the best high school musicians in Southeastern Massachusetts.

They will be playing in either the Senior District Festival or Junior District Festival.

Nine of the senior musicians have also received All-State recommendations.

These students will audition in January and, if chosen, will have the opportunity to perform at Symphony Hall in March, along with other students from around the state.

To audition for the festivals, the students had to perform an assigned piece of music as well as sight-read and/or perform several scales on their instrument.

The Senior District Festival will take place at Canton High School on Jan. 11 and 12, and the Junior District Festival will take place March 8 and 9 at Attleboro High School.
