Anukriti Arora, a student at Munster High School, has been selected for the 2018 High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall. She will perform in February with the Honors Ensemble. Participation in one of the five Honors Ensembles is limited to the highest-rated high school performers from across the world.

Earlier this year, Arora auditioned for the Honors Performance Series and was accepted after a review by the Honors Selection Board. Acceptance to the elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements demonstrated in application and audition recording. She will join other performers from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Guam, six Canadian provinces, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Mexico, New Zealand, Qatar, South Korea, and the United Kingdom for a special performance at world-famous Carnegie Hall, a venue that marks the pinnacle of musical achievement.

According to Morgan Smith, program director, “Being selected to the Honors Performance Series is something each Finalist should be extremely proud of accomplishing. We processed more than 18,000 nominations this year and have selected nearly 700 of the most talented student performers from around the world. Working with these conductors and performing at Carnegie Hall is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that these musicians never forget”.

Arora has studied music for 13years and is a member of the Munster High School Chorale. She will also be performing at the prestigious Sydney Opera House in July.

"It is an honor and privilege to be able to perform with such a talented group of peers and I look forward to the experience," Arora said.
