Governor Mifflin senior Vrushabh Doshi, 17, was recently selected as a member of the 2013 National Association for Music Education (NAfME) All-National Honors Chorus. Doshi was one of 670 talented students from across the United States to perform at a gala concert on October 30 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Doshi participates in several Governor Mifflin music ensembles, including the choir, concert band, marching band, orchestra, Ambassadors, and Governors and First Ladies. Outside of school, he performs with the Berks Youth Chorus and Reading Symphony Junior Orchestra. Doshi enjoys playing the piano, viola, and alto saxophone. He is also one of the founding members of the barbershop quartet, “The Mixed Nuts,” in which he sings tenor. Doshi has been accepted into county, district, regional, and all-state choruses. Only students who perform at the state level are eligible to audition for the All-National Honor Ensembles. Doshi submitted his audition earlier this year via video and was accepted.

The NafME All-National Honors Ensembles, consisting of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus and jazz ensemble, are organized by the National Association for Music Education. Doshi will be one of approximately 350 vocalists performing in the chorus.

Doshi and the NAfME All-National Honors Ensembles performed for an audience of thousands Wednesday in the Presidential Ballroom of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville.
