CDS Celebrates Two All-State Upper School Musicians
2024 All State Musicians

Celebrations abound as we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Alyssa Chen, '27 and Chelsea Alderman, '24 for their outstanding achievement as FMEA All-State Upper School musicians!

In a remarkable showcase of musical prowess, they recently participated in ensembles at the Florida Music Educators Association's (FMEA) Annual Conference. The FMEA All-State ensembles, known for their exceptional selectivity, bring together the finest musicians from across the state. Alyssa and Chelsea represented CDS with distinction and showcased the musical excellence synonymous with the CDS upper school music program.

With rehearsals totaling 15-17 hours over two days, these ensembles culminated in awe-inspiring performances on the conference's final day. Their dedication and talent shine brightly, adding another layer of pride to the musical legacy at Carrollwood Day School.


Thank you to CDS Upper School Music Teacher, James Mayo, for his support and tutelage.
