Tilghman Sophomore Alec Wadley Selected to National Chorus
During the 2014-15 school year, talented music students across the United States and overseas in military base schools practiced with dedication to gain a chair or part in their local, district, and state music honor ensembles. And of those most elite high school musicians who were accepted to their district or All-State music ensembles, 673 of them—the “best of the best”—were selected for the NAfME 2015 All-National Honor Ensembles.
The All-National Honor Ensembles consist of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed choir, and jazz ensemble. Students were chosen through an audition process. Wadley auditioned in August for the mixed choir, and was selected to sing second tenor.
On October 28, during the 2015 NAfME National In-Service Conference, Wadley and other exceptional young musicians will gather in Nashville, Tennessee, to showcase their expert musicianship and perform a gala concert starting at 9:00am. The performance will take place on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry House stage, known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment that’s been referred to as the “home of American music.”
Wadley is a member of Paducah Tilghman’s concert choir and its mens’ a cappella group, Prime Rib. He is on the Academic team, and will play the role of Shrek in Tilghman’s production of “Shrek the Musical.” Outside of school, Wadley also participates in Paducah Symphony Orchestra’s Youth Chorus. His parents are Heather and Josh Wadley.
