MILLBURN, NJ - Nine Millburn High School students have been selected to perform in the 2015 National Association for Music Education (NAFME) All-Eastern Honors Ensembles, joining more than 810 of the most musically talented high school students in the Eastern region of the United States.

Millburn students were selected for the following ensembles:

Jazz Ensemble: Louis Danowsky (12)- Alto Saxophone; Mark Russell Gomez (12)- Bass

Sign Up for E-News

Orchestra: Ellim Kim (12)- Piano

Mixed Chorus: Olivia Estes (12)- Alto, Lily Jacobs (11)- Soprano, Miranda Kasher (12)- Soprano, Arielle Kasnetz (11)- Soprano 

Treble Voice Chorus: Carly Maitlin (12)- Soprano, Ambika Chetal (11) Alto 

These students will prepare challenging music that they will perform  under  the leadership  of prominent conductors in this biennial event. Students will spend three days rehearsing with one of five conductors during the Eastern Division Conference of The National Association for Music Education to be held in Providence, R.I. in preparation for performances on April 11 and April 12, 2015.

The NAFME All-Eastern Honors Ensembles, consisting of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus, treble voice chorus, and jazz ensemble, are organized by members of The National Association for Music Education. Student participation from each state is determined by a percentage of the total NAFME Eastern Division membership, with no state given less than 2 percent representation.

Each of the state music educators associations in the Eastern Division oversee the selection process in their state during the spring and early fall of the year before the event and compile ranked lists of recommended juniors and seniors for consideration. The method used to compile the lists varies from state to state, although all recommended students must have participated (or will be participating in) their home all-state festivals.

The 2015  NAFME  All-Eastern  Honors  Jazz Ensemble  will perform  on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the Rhode Island Convention Center.   The 2015 NAFME All-Eastern Honors Treble Voice Chorus and Mixed Chorus will perform on Sunday, April 12, 2015, at 11 a.m. and the Band and Orchestra on April 12, 2015 at 1 p.m. Both concerts will be at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, Providence, Rhode Island.
