Five PMHS students qualify for regional chorus festival

Five Penn Manor High School students have qualified to participate in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association’s Region V Chorus Festival.

The students are Drew Lebo and David Ferre (both tenor 1), Kaleb Kabakjian (bass 1), James Helm (bass 2), and Nicole Chen (piano accompanist).

The students qualified for Regionals after auditioning during the PMEA District 7 Chorus Festival, held January 13 and 14 at Solanco High School. Nicole placed first on her instrument and Kaleb placed fourth in his voice part following the auditions.

The Region V level of the festival circuit includes students from school districts spanning 16 counties in Districts 7 and 10. 

The Region V Chorual Festival will be held February 24 and 25 at Mountain View Middle School in Cumberland Valley School District.

Congratulations to these students and Penn Manor’s choral director, Lauren Ciemiewicz!
