Last month, outstanding sixth grade band students from the Warwick elementary schools participated in the 2017 Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Youth Honor Band at Boiling Springs High School. The students that attended the event were: Duncan McKay on tuba, Alex Fair on trombone, Hayden Milchanowski and Lilly Walls on french horn, Chloe Harris and Isaac Nancarvis on trumpet, Damon Barto, Cooper Hayes, and Maggie Turner on alto saxophone, Rebekah Trovinger on clarinet, and Jonah Ahlers on flute.
These talented Warwick students joined 170 other 5th and 6th grade performers from eight Pennsylvania counties. Attending this two-day musical event required these students to dedicate additional time and energy to perfect their band instruments, which culminated with a Saturday afternoon concert packed full of the musicians' friends and families.
Pennsylvania Music Educators Association is a statewide nonprofit organization of over 4,500 members, dedicated to promoting the musical development of all Pennsylvanians.
Congratulations to these hard working elementary band students!
