Junior Eastern Regional Orchestra (JERO) Auditions Success

Junior Eastern Regional Orchestra (JERO) Auditions Success

The annual Junior Eastern Regional Orchestra (JERO) auditions were held virtually this year. Students worked for about a month and a half preparing and recording. JERO is an event where orchestra programs from the eastern side of the state send their top students to audition for a spot in the orchestra. Those that win seats will go on to participate in a clinic and concert held in Jacksonville, NC on May 7th.

Murray had the highest number of students win seats in our district for the 4th year in a row and the top number for all of eastern NC for the 2nd year in a row! We are proud to announce that for the first time Murray had three 6th grade students audition and win seats! Please join us in congratulating the following students:
