Tessa Taylor, a student at New London High School, has been selected for the 2011 American High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall.
She will be a part of the Honors Band as a French horn player. Participation in the Honors Band is limited to the highest rated high school performers from across North America. Acceptance to the elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements demonstrated in her application and audition recording.
Finalists will come together for five days in February 2012 in New York City. Taylor will see a Broadway show, tour Times Square and attend a private party for the performers at the Empire State Building.
Taylor studies music with Dr. Patrick Miles, University of Wisconsin Stevens Point faculty, as well as Don Krause, of Appleton. She is a member of Fox Valley Youth Orchestra and the Fox Valley Horn Choir. Tessa’s parents are Kevin and Peggy Taylor of New London.
