In The News – Trumpet Her Success

| |

A young Tewksbury musician will be hitting the road soon, trumpeting her way across the country as part of the elite Spartan’s drum corps. Megan Cunningham, a Tewksbury Memorial High rising junior and trumpet player, auditioned and was recently accepted into the Spartans Drum and Bugle Corps based in Nashua, New Hampshire. Residents will be familiar with Cunning­ham from her performances with the TMHS marching unit and town ceremony appearances. She is active in math team, concert band, and the Affinity Winter Guard. Cunningham saw a video of the Spartan’s during a music class one day and was hooked. “I knew immediately it was something I wanted to do” she said. After attending a re­hearsal and watching the band live, she knew it was for her. “There is just a short window of time when you can be a part of a marching unit” she said, noting that she is considering marching band programs during her college search as well. Cunningham has been playing the trumpet since fifth grade.
