AHS Orchestra student selected for national music ensemble

Matthew Greiner, Class of 2025, will serve as an alternate for the National Association for Music Education's (NAfME) All-National Ensemble! The sophomore cello player received the national selection after being named the best Grades 9-10 cello player in West Tennessee and then again in the state-wide competition. 

Selection to the NAfME All-National Ensemble is one of the highest music honors a high school student can achieve. Matthew is the first AHS Orchestra student in school history to be selected to this group and is the first member of the band or orchestra to be selected since 2016. 

Watch as Matthew kicks off our new music series, Arlington Jams, with his rendition of Bach Cello Suite No. 3, Prelude.
