Shrewsbury – Shrewsbury High School student Nathan Kessel has been selected as a member of the 2013 National Association for Music Education (NAfME) All-National Honor Choir. Kessel will join more than 670 high school students to perform at a concert on Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Nashville, Tenn.

The NAfME All-National Honors Ensembles consists of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus, and jazz ensemble. Eligible students have qualified for their state-level honor ensemble program and competed against top students for a spot in these ensembles. Kessel is one of approximately 350 vocalists who will perform in the chorus.

“Nathan Kessel has been an integral member of our choral program at Shrewsbury High School for the past three years and we are very proud to have him represent our school,” Bonnie L. Narcisi, Shrewsbury's K-12 director of music and theater, said. “We enjoy his robust bass voice resonating daily as he performs with the Shrewsbury High School Honors A Cappella Choir.”

The students will prepare challenging music that they will perform for an audience of thousands under the baton of four of the most prominent conductors in the U.S., at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville.
