Two LPS music students recently attended the prestigious All-National Honor Ensembles, an annual performance event sponsored by the National Association for Music Education.

Alexa Thompson of Lincoln Southeast High School qualified as an alto for the mixed choir. Jae Hyun Lim of Lincoln Southwest High School was selected for violin as part of the orchestra.

Students from across the country were chosen after an application process that included an audition, which required students to upload an unedited and unaccompanied video of them performing a common piece of music.

The ensembles event was held Nov. 28-29 in Orlando, Fla., and featured more than 600 of the most elite high school musicians from across the country. For two days they rehearsed and performed with one of four groups: concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed choir or jazz ensemble.
