Congratulations To Max Gorell
Max Gorell, a senior at Falmouth High School, is this year’s recipient of the Falmouth Chorale’s Frederick Johnson Music Scholarship. This award, now in its 14th year, has the dual purpose of supporting the higher education goals of Upper Cape music students and of honoring Frederick Johnson, a long-time Falmouth music educator who directed the Falmouth Chorale for eighteen years.
Max’s principal instrument is baritone saxophone, but he plays alto and tenor saxophone, clarinet and bass clarinet, and flute. His accomplishments are many: marching band Drum Major, member of the Tri-Music honor society, winner of the Outstanding Overall Music Student Award, MVP of the Symphony band (freshman year), MVP of the Wind Ensemble (sophomore year), and MVP of the Jazz Band (junior year). As a senior, he was a teaching assistant with the Symphony band. Outside of school, Max has given private saxophone lessons, played with the Falmouth Town Band, and participated in CJazz, Flute Choir, and Saxophone Choir at the Cape Conservatory. Next year, he will attend Penn State as a music education major.

The Falmouth Chorale began in 1964 when thirteen musicians from several Falmouth churches planned a joint performance of Handel’s Messiah under the leadership of John Gerry-Karajanes, organist Father William C. Campbell and others.
The mission of the Falmouth Chorale is to share with our audiences the joy of singing and to communicate with passion the marvelous and varied choral music which has been created over the centuries.
