Senior Alex Fansel and Sophomore Nick Kathios from Bishop Guertin High School have been selected to perform at the National Association for Music Education’s All-National Festival in Nashville, Tennessee, in October.
Fansel, a drummer, was invited to apply after performing with New Hampshire’s Jazz All-State Festival Jazz Band at Pinkerton Academy last February. Kathios was invited to apply after playing horn with the All-State Orchestra at the Capital Center for the Arts last April.
Four ensembles comprise NAfME’s All-National Festival: a Concert Band, Symphonic Orchestra, Mixed Choir, and Jazz Band. Students from across the country are chosen based on their standing in their respective all-state festivals. Every state is represented in the festival. Nine musicians from New Hampshire were invited to apply. Fansel and Kathios are two of the four students selected to represent New Hampshire at the festival. Read More
