These seven students will travel to Tampa in January to rehearse and perform with the best musicians in the state of Florida.  Dan Wooten, director of bands, is pleased to learn that the Eagle Pride will once again be well-represented.  Having seven members chosen from a traditional high school is a huge accomplishment for NHS. The All-State groups are most often dominated with students from performing arts magnet schools from large metropolitan areas.

The annual FMEA conference is one of the largest music education professional development events in the U.S. More than 10,000 music educators, college students, college administrators and performers attend.

Please congratulate these outstanding musicians when you see them.  The Eagle Pride is so proud of them for this great achievement!

All State Band

L-R:  Ian Zegouros, Ryan Murphey, Jazzlyn Timper, Carly Crist, Clara Brown, Rhizza Lucena, Ashleigh Wallace, and principal Charles Marello.
