Three selected for All-State Chorus
Three Upper St. Clair High School students have been selected to perform in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) All-State Festival music ensembles. Participating in the chorus ensemble are sophomore Elliott Bruno, Bass 1, Chair 6; junior Reese Copenhaver, Soprano 2, Chair 2; and senior Colin Eccher, Tenor 1, Chair 1.
Each year, thousands of high school musicians across the commonwealth audition in their geographic area. Individually, students perform for a panel of judges. Student musicians who rank the highest advance to compete against student musicians from other parts of PMEA regions. The highest-ranking student musicians at the PMEA region level qualify to perform in one of six Pennsylvania All-State music ensembles.
The PMEA All-State Festival will be held April 19-22, 2023, at the Kalahari Resort in the Poconos. The All-State ensembles, directed by nationally recognized conductors, will rehearse for two days and conclude with a performance. All-State Ensembles include jazz and vocal jazz, chorus, concert band, orchestra and wind ensembles.
