Outstanding music students from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming have received top honors by being selected to participate in one of our 2017 NAfME All-Northwest performing groups. The students listed below will join over 1,000 other high school student musicians in the gala event.
NAfME All-Northwest high school bands, orchestras and choirs will meet in Bellevue, Washington February 16-19. They will rehearse and perform in concert under the direction of world-renowned conductors. These All-Northwest musicians were selected from over 4600 students who auditioned to participate in this outstanding event, which is managed by the Washington Music Educators Association.
Many professional musicians credit their All-Northwest experience as crucial in their decision to choose music as a career. Thousands of others whose career paths took them in different directions have great memories of participating in this inspiring and motivating musical experience and claim that it was a life-changing experience for them.
Well-known Northwesterners who have participated in past years' All-Northwest groups include Doc Severinson and Allen Vizzutti, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist David Horsey, 2008 National Teacher of the Year Andrea Peterson, and jazz saxophonist Kenny G.
