Bronxville High School student Caroline Schetlick has been selected to perform with the 2015 All-National Honor Ensembles in Nashville in October. Schetlick is among 673 students from across the country to be selected by the National Association for Music Education for this prestigious honor.
Schetlick, who was designated by the New York State School Music Association as an All-State musician last year, was selected by NAFME this year because she was considered to be among “the best of the best.” After competing against top musicians and undergoing a rigorous audition process, she was selected to perform with approximately 350 other vocalists in the All-National Mixed Choir.
Bronxville choir director Pamela Simpson said Schetlick is an exemplary student and leader. “A student like Caroline comes along very rarely, and it has been a pleasure to nurture her exceptional talent,” she said. “Her yearly solo NYSSMA scores have earned her entrance into All-County, Area All-State, All-State, All-Eastern and All-National choirs.”
The All-National Honor Ensembles consist of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed choir and jazz ensemble. The student-musicians are currently rehearsing a challenging repertoire in preparation to perform under the baton of five of the most prominent conductors in the country.
The All-National Honor Ensembles concert will take place in Nashville, Tennessee, from Oct. 25-28.
