MIDDLEBURY — Nikolas Shashok, a senior at Middlebury Union High School, has been selected as a member of the 2013 NAfME All-National Honor Concert Band sponsored by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME).
Shashok will join more than 670 of the most musically talented and skilled high school students in the United States to perform at a gala concert on Oct. 30 in Nashville, Tenn. Shashok is a student of MUHS Band Director Anne Severy. This is the third consecutive year that a student from Middlebury Union High School has been selected to perform in this prestigious music festival. 
These exceptional students will prepare remarkably challenging music that they will perform under the baton of four of the most prominent conductors in the United States: Dr. Peter Boonshaft, Miriam Burns, Rollo Dilworth and Rodney Whitaker.
The NAfME All-National Honors Ensembles, consisting of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus and jazz ensemble, are organized by members of the National Association for Music Education. The concert band and symphony orchestra will each have approximately 150 instrumentalists, the jazz ensemble will have 20 instrumentalists, and the mixed chorus will have approximately 350 vocalists. Eligible students have qualified for their state-level honor ensemble program and competed against top students for a spot in these national honor ensembles.
