Music Student Selected for Prestigious Honor

Harborfields High School senior Hannah Bartfield recently performed in the National Association for Music Education All National Honor Band, sitting First Chair in the trumpet section for the group.  

Bartfield was notified at the end of last school year that she made the NAfME All National Honor Band. Through a competitive process, she was selected as one out of only eighteen high school trumpet players in the entire country to be a part of this elite group of musicians.

During Veterans Day weekend, Bartfield travelled to Grapevine, Texas to take part in rehearsals and a culminating concert with the band. Based on her audition video, she was chosen as one out of four musicians for the First Trumpet part; while she was there, her seating audition landed her First Chair in that section.

Music Department Coordinator Dan Bilawsky attended the performance and was very impressed.  “She did herself and her community proud,” he said. “The entire music department is incredibly happy for Hannah. We join in celebrating her accomplishments.”
