Two musicians named to PMEA All-State Concert Band
Upper St. Clair High School trumpeter Steven Fontanella and percussionist Matt Higgs earned placement in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association All-State Concert Band, the highest level symphonic ensemble for Pennsylvania students. Steven and Matt were selected based on auditions held recently at the Western Region State Band Festival at Valley High School.
Steven and Matt are members of the USC High School bands, under the direction of Mr. Don Pickell and Mr. Frank Eisenreich. The All-State Band will rehearse March 31-April 2, 2016, and present a public performance on April 2 in the Great American Hall at Hershey Lodge.
