Dunwoody High Students Chosen for National Honor Ensemble

Two Dunwoody High School students have been selected for the prestigious NAfME (National Association for Music Education) All-National Honor Ensemble.
Conrad Paetz, a senior, and Alex Miller, a junior, will take part in a two-day clinic that ends with a concert at the Grand Ole Opry House on Oct 28. Two of only 15 students from across the state, the students were selected based on their auditions and standing as All State Chorus members. Both students are members of Dunwoody High School’s Chorus program under the direction of Mr. Mark Lamback.

More on the NAfME All-National Honor Ensemble:

RESTON, VA (September 17, 2015)—During the 2014-15 school year, talented music students across the United States and overseas in military base schools practiced with dedication to gain a chair or part in their local, district, and state music honor ensembles. And of those most elite high school musicians who were accepted to their district or All-State music ensembles, 673 of them—the “best of the best”—were selected for the National Association for Music Education’s (NAFME) 2015 All-National Honor Ensembles.

On October 28, during the 2015 NAfME National In-Service Conference, these exceptional young musicians will gather in Nashville, Tennessee, to showcase their expert musicianship and perform a gala concert starting at 9:00am. The performance will take place on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry House stage, known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment that’s been referred to as the “home of American music.”
