Student to perform with all All-National Band at Grand Ole Opry

Niles North High School student Daniel Sahyouni has been selected to perform with the all-National Concert Band. The All-National Honors Ensembles are comprised of 674 high school students from across the United States. Only 13 students were selected from the state of Illinois, and of those, only three are band students.

Sahyouni is the first Niles North student to be awarded this honor. Only students who have previously participated in All-State Honors Ensembles were eligible for the National Honors Ensemble. He was selected on the basis of his video audition.

Sahyouni will be participating in the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) Conference, at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, TN in October. The All-National Concert Band will be directed by renowned composer-conductor Mark Camphouse.
