Los Alamos High School student Alice Shao has been selected for the 2014 High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall. She will perform at Carnegie Hall in February with the band as a B flat clarinet. Participation in one of the three Honors Ensembles is limited to the highest rated high school performers from across North America and select schools internationally.
Shao auditioned this fall for the Honors Performance Series and was accepted after a review by the Honors Selection Board. Acceptance to the elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements demonstrated in her application and audition recording.
Shao will join other performers from the United States, Canada, and select international schools for a special performance at world-famous Carnegie Hall, a venue that marks the pinnacle of musical achievement.
“Working with these conductors and performing at Carnegie Hall is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that these student musicians never forget,” Program Director Morgan Smith said.
Finalists will come together for five days in February in New York City to have an opportunity to work with other Finalists, and get a taste of New York City.
The Honors Performance Series was created to showcase accomplished individual high school performers on an international level by allowing them to study under master conductors and perform in the celebrated venue, Carnegie Hall.
