Elliot Russo has been named Principal Percussion of the National High School Honors Orchestra.
Russo competed against applicants for the orchestra from throughout the United States. Elliot was one of three students from the State of Alabama selected to participate. 

The National High School Honors Orchestra (NHSHO) is a performing group of 120 competitively selected high school musicians who assemble biennially to perform at the American String Teachers Association National Conference. The mission of the NHSHO is to select the most talented young musicians from orchestras in each state to perform in a national showcase, playing music from the professional orchestral literature under the direction of an internationally recognized conductor. The students working toward excellence in the NHSHO are inspired to carry that excellence back to their own orchestras and on to a musical future.
The National High School Honors Orchestra will be held March 5-7, 2014, in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Congratulations Elliot!
