Junior Ava Tiller and sophomore Nora Butler participated at the All National Honors Ensembles Festival in Florida this week. In order for a student to make it into the All National Ensemble, students must begin their application process in October of the previous year, learning a piece of music as prescribed by the National Association for Music Educators. This piece of music is usually quite difficult and students must perform their application without any help except their music. If they are admitted to the local level, they participate in that celebration and can audition for the next level, states. If they can make it into states, they can then audition for the regional level. If they qualify for the regional level, they participate in that concert and celebration and can then audition for the national level.
