RAHWAY—At the recent Central Jersey Music Educators Association (CJMEA) Symphonic Band concert, Rahway High School sophomore Nate Figueroa was selected by audition as one of the best trumpet players in New Jersey.
At the high school, Figueroa performs in marching band, wind symphony, jazz ensemble and musical theater. He also plays guitar and piano. This past summer, Figueroa performed professionally at The Crossroads in Garwood as a member of the band, Attack on Sunset, where he played keyboard and sang.
Although Figueroa is not currently performing professionally in order to devote more time to school, he hopes ultimately for a career as a performer and perhaps a teacher.
