Students Participate In Regional Orchestra March 22, 2019
Elizabethtown Area High School orchestra students Sean Brown, violin, and Mayelin Ebersole, viola, recently took part in the 2019 Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Central Region Orchestra Festival held at the Performing Arts Center in Williamsport. Dr. Gerardo Edelstein, director of orchestras at Penn State University, conducted the ensemble of about 100 talented high school musicians.
A team of judges, composed of local music teachers, selected the students to the Central Region Orchestra based on their performance at the District 7 festival held in January.
Participants at the regional level represented the top orchestra students from not only District 7, which covers Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York counties, but also District 8, which consists of Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, and Union counties.
This is the second time that Ebersole has played in the regional orchestra and the third time that Brown has earned the honor.
The high school's orchestra director is Rich Winey.
