November 16, 2016 – Thirty-two Mercer Island High School students in band, choir and orchestra have been selected to participate in the 2017 National Association for Music Education (NAfME) All-State and All-Northwest honor groups this coming February.
“Their success is a testament to the commitment and talent of their teachers and to the unwavering support of their parents as well,” said Superintendent Dr. Gary Plano.
These students were selected from hundreds of applicants representing six states that submitted recordings and were screened individually by professional musicians. They will participate and perform in one of a number of large ensembles led by nationally-renowned conductors at the NAfME Northwest convention to be held in Bellevue February 16 to 19, 2017.
“We are so proud of all our fine musicians and know that they will represent MIHS with pride,” said Parker Bixby, director of bands at MIHS.
