Jake Bahr is a senior who plays trombone. He has participated in Regions and All-State and he plays with the New Jersey Youth Symphony.

Victor Li is a junior who plays viola. He has also participated in Regions and All-State.

Congratulations on this great achievement!

The NAfME All-Eastern Honors Ensembles, consisting of concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus, treble voice chorus, and jazz ensemble, are organized members of The National Association for Music Education. Student participation from each state is determined by a percentage of the total NAfME Eastern Division membership, with no state given less than two percent representation.

Each of the state music educators associations in the Eastern Division (CT, DC, DE, MA, MD, ME, ME, NH, NJ, NY, RI, PA, VT, Europe) oversee the selection process in their state during the Spring and early Fall of the year before the event and complete ranked lists of recommended juniors and seniors for consideration. The method used to complete the lists varies from state to state, although all recommended students MUST have participated (or will be participating in) in their home all-state festivals.

The 2013 NAfME All-Eastern Honors Ensembles will perform for an audience of thousands on Sunday, April 7, 2013, at the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, Mortensen Hall, in Hartford, Connecticut. For program and ticket information, please visit www.nafme-eastern.org
