Grace Mayhew accepted into NAfME 2021 All-Eastern Orchestra

Grace was selected as one of the finest high school musicians from the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Grace will participate playing clarinet in a "Virtual Weekend” experience March 4-6, 2021 that will include keynote speakers, masterclasses with professional musicians, rehearsals with their conductors as well as opportunities to learn and network with colleges and universities of various types and participate in mock auditions. Her orchestra conductor will be Dr. James Tapia, of Syracuse University.

This non-traditional and unique experience will be very different from the in-person rehearsals and concerts that have, in the past, coincided with NAfME Eastern Division biennial conference in Hartford, CT. This year, students will individually record their performance from home led by a virtual performance of their conductor. The recordings will be edited together to produce a virtual ensemble for the concert performance. The concert will premiere on April 23rd at 8:30pm.

The NAfME Eastern Division is excited about this new experience for our students and hopes that they enjoy all that is being planned.
