When the lights are dimmed and a hush descends upon an audience of more than 54,000 at the nation’s largest annual student convention this fall, Amber TerHaar, a senior at Cedar Springs High School, will share the spotlight in a musical performance that will inspire the crowd and provide memories to last a lifetime.

Amber, a member of the Cedar Springs FFA chapter, has been selected to play flute in the National FFA Band. She submitted an audition tape and was one of the 85 FFA members selected to help bring full instrumental balance to the band. The 85 were chosen out of a pool of 200 applications.

Amber, who is a member of the Cedar Springs Marching Red Hawks, the wind ensemble, and the West Michigan Flute Association, was excited to learn she’d won a spot. “I usually go and play with the Michigan State FFA band, and this year I thought I’d step it up and try to play for both,” she said.

The band will perform several times October 20-23 at the 83rd National FFA Convenion, adding excitement and motivation to the sessions through their music. The musicians will have three days in Indianapolis to rehearse before the convention.

Amber said that after high school she hopes to attend Cornerstone University and play in their band as well.
