Three students from the Mt. Eden High School Instrumental Music Program were recently accepted into the 2018 National Honor Band of America and a fourth was accepted to the National Honor Orchestra of America.

Axel Garcia (trombone) and Diego Alfaro (trumpet) represent the top 12 young musicians in the U.S. for their chosen instrument, while Hammaad Hassan (percussion) represents the top eight. All three were selected for the National Honor Band. Meanwhile, Edwin Ramos, a violinist, will join the National Honor Orchestra -- an honor he has received for two years in a row. All four students are juniors at Mt. Eden High School in Hayward.

As part of the honor ensemble, the students will perform on a national stage at Music for All National Musical Festival set for March 15-17 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Kevin and Earl Cato are the respective band and orchestra directors for Mt. Eden High School and are proud of their students' accomplishment. "The accepted students are a great example of the many dedicated and talented members of our wonderfully extraordinary visual and fine arts programs at Mt. Eden High School," they said in a joint statement. "Truly, they're a testament that hard work, perseverance, and persistence will assist you in achieving your goals." The brothers have seen their Mt. Eden students selected for honor ensembles for ten consecutive years.


*Since the publication of this article, a fifth Mt. Eden student was selected for a national ensemble. Maxwell Finely plays the French horn.
