                        Wednesday, June 26, 2013

  Mr. WEBSTER of Florida. Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to 
congratulate clarinetist Arianna Beyer on competing in and winning the 
2013 United States Navy Band High School Concerto Competition. This 
annual competition identifies the best high school musical talent in 
the nation and allows the finalists to travel to Washington, D.C. to 
compete for a chance to perform a prepared solo piece with the world-
renowned United States Navy Band.
   For 12 years now, the United States Navy Band has hosted this 
national competition. After each student submits an audio recording, 
the United States Navy Band evaluates each submission and selects the 
finalists to come to Washington, D.C. to perform at the competition. 
This competition is not only used as a method of motivating and 
rewarding inspiring musicians, but also to stimulate America's future 
leaders. In order to win this competition, Ms. Beyer sacrificed a vast 
amount of her time and dedicated herself to this goal. Her relentless 
pursuit of maximizing her potential has allowed her to gain tremendous 
recognition as a clarinetist at a young age. Ms. Beyer continues to go 
above and beyond all expectations in her musical endeavors.
   Her accomplishments do not end with winning the United States Navy 
Band High School Concerto Competition. She has excelled in the 
classroom and as a leader in her community. Arianna continues to give 
back by mentoring peers in both music and academic curriculums. In 
addition, Arianna is a 2013 Emerson Scholar and has received a full 
merit scholarship to attend Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan 
this upcoming summer. In the fall of 2013, she will begin her dual 
degree studies at the Eastman School of Music and the College of Arts 
and Sciences at the University of Rochester.
   On behalf of the citizens of Central Florida, I am pleased to 
recognize and applaud Arianna for her hard work, dedication and 
achievement. She is most deserving of this prestigious honor as the 
winner of the 2013 United States Navy Band High School Concerto 
Competition. May her character and passion inspire others to follow in 
her footsteps. I wish her great success as she applies her dedication 
toward even higher pursuits.
