Max Dvorin of West Hartford has been accepted into the National Association for Music Education’s All National Honors Ensembles. He will play the clarinet in the all-American high school band. To make the cut, the 17-year-old Hall High School senior submitted an audition tape and underwent an arduous audition process in Nashville, Tenn., in which he performed for judges over a three-day period in late October. To be considered for the Ensembles, applicants must also have been selected to their state’s All-State Festival. Dvorin has been an All-State musician since freshman year.
In addition to winning a spot with the All National Honors Ensembles, Dvorin was recently chosen as an alternate alto saxophone player with the Jazz Band of America. Only two teens are selected to play alto sax with the prestigious all-American high school jazz band.
The son of Larry and the late Rhonda Dvorin, Max is currently in the process of auditioning at some of the finest music schools in the country.
