Florida Music Education Association presents 23 different All-State Ensembles that rehearse and perform as part of the annual FEMA Professional Development Conference. Auditions are held in May and selections are chosen each year from thousands of students.

This year Noah Johnson and Param Mehta were chosen to be a member of the FMEA High Honor Orchestra. Not to be excluded from the recognition, are Middle School students Aaryn Watson and Sreyas Narayan who were selected to be a part of the FMEA Middle School Honor Orchestra.

These students will Travel to Tampa in January to perform with other students from all over the state.

FSUS Orchestra Director, Terice Allen was thrilled to announce their selection, “These students were nominated by me and selection was based on their musical resume. This is a prestigious honor because they had to show a history of musical excellence prior to being selected”.

Tyr9Since becoming the Director of Development and Programming, I have gained a deep appreciation for our performing arts department. Our students put in countless hours of hard work and dedication that have contributed to our performing arts prestige. Our teachers have shown a commitment to the arts that sparks an interest in our kids and lights the flame of curiosity for the arts in our community. These four students represent what it means to be a Florida High Seminole and will become tomorrow's "Leaders Who Inspire", Tyrone McGriff said.
