Hugo Castor, Music

Born and raised in Nogales AZ., Started being involved in music as a freshman at Nogales High School. Participated in many musical groups throughout high school. As a senior I was nominated, and was a runner up, to perform with the McDonald's All American Band. Only two music students from every state are chosen. After graduation, I attended Mesa Community College on a music scholarship where I studied music with an emphasis on jazz performance and arranging. I transferred to CSU,Chico in the Fall of 1986 and graduated with a BA in music in 1989. I received my teaching in 1992. I started teaching in the Fall River Joint Unified School District in August of 1995.



Welcome from Mr. Castro: 
Dear Parents/Guardians,
I would like to give everyone a huge welcome back to school. I have missed my young performers so very much! I hope they are all doing well and are adjusting to the "new normal". As you know by now, all schools across the state have been notified that the performing arts students cannot sing or play instruments. What we have decided to do at FRHS is have a drama class and a beginning and intermediate percussion ensemble.So far I have been impressed with our music students, They are trying to learn a new instrument and are doing well. Since we cannot perform in a venue, my plan is to record a video of my musicians and put that recording in our school site for all family members and friends to enjoy. This will be the first time we have ever done this. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope it turns out well! I am very proud of my students, they are being "troopers" and are adhering to this idea. Again, welcome back and thank you for your support, as always.
Mr. Castro
