Nauset High School, located in North Eastham, Massachusetts, has a long-standing reputation for academic as well as musical excellence. All our performing groups from Nauset High School share in the success attending recent music festivals up and down the east coast of the United States. These festivals include: New York City, NY, Boston, MA, Orlando FL as well as other locations (Washington, Williamsburg, Annapolis, Montreal). The students that comprise these ensembles are some of the most dedicated in the school. Our student-musicians, may also be student-athletes, student-leaders, as well as student-scholars. We are collectively very proud of our recent award from the Classic Music Festival in Boston, MA where Nauset High School was awarded for having the outstanding music department of the weekend. In addition, Nauset was recognized with the “Spirit of Boston” award for excellence, support, camaraderie and espirit d’corps. The Music Department of Nauset Regional High School has just returned from a highly successful performance tour of Ireland in April of 2016. 103 students travelled internationally to participate in master classes, as well as performances in Limerick, Cork, Dublin and Leopardstown, Ireland. The department students participated in several anniversary commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising.
