Gabriella Alberico from Clarence High School has been selected as a member of the 2013 National Association for Music Education (NAfME) All-National Honor Symphonic Band sponsored by NAfME. Alberico will join more than 670 of the most musically talented and skilled high school students in the United States to perform at a gala concert on October 30 in Nashville, Tennessee.
These exceptional students will prepare remarkably challenging music that they will perform under the baton of four of the most prominent conductors in the United States: Dr. Peter Boonshaft, Miriam Burns, Rollo Dilworth, and Rodney Whitaker.
“Having the wonderful privilege of being involved with the Clarence Band Program has opened up a world of opportunities for me, which would otherwise never been possible. I would like to thank my community and teachers and am proud to represent them as a member the NAfME All—National Symphonic Band,” said Alberico.
The NAfME All-National Honors Ensembles, consisting of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus, and jazz ensemble, are organized by members of the National Association for Music Education. The concert band and symphony orchestra will each have approximately 150 instrumentalists, the jazz ensemble will have 20 instrumentalists, and the mixed chorus will have approximately 350 vocalists. Eligible students have qualified for their state-level honor ensemble program and competed against top students for a spot in these national honor ensembles.
The 2013 NAfME All-National Honors Ensembles will perform for an audience of thousands on Wednesday, October 30 in the Presidential Ballroom of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, in Nashville. For program and ticket information please visit http://musiced.nafme.org/all-national-honor-ensembles/.
