BHS Musicians Accepted to Prestigious Schools


Amanda Ramey and Petey Oneto

Bethel High School Senior musicians have flourished in their college search. Three Seniors in particular have been recognized as musical scholars, and were selected among thousands of students for some of the most prestigious schools. Matthew and Kevin Hannequinn have been accepted to the Carnegie Mellon School of Music, and Caroline Renner was accepted to the NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Carnegie Mellon only accepts 30.4% of its students into the regular school, and the music program is composed of only eight students. Both brothers plan to take an additional major as well as taking part in the music program. Matt plays the trumpet and intends to study business, and Kevin plays the trombone and plans to pursue engineering.

In addition to their acceptance, the Hannequinns and Caroline Renner all competed in the All-State Competition on April 3-5. Kevin and Matt are two of the four trumpet and trombone players selected from Connecticut. Caroline ranked in the top portion of Connecticut.

Renner was accepted to the NYU Tisch Musical Arts School, which runs a 3% acceptance rate.

The Wildcat Word congratulates these three musically inclined individuals on their immense success. Bethel High looks forward to seeing what the musicians accomplish at their respective schools.
