February 23, 2016- Two choral students from Elizabethtown Area High School were selected to the highly competitive Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District 7 chorus. A team of judges comprised of local music teachers chose the talented vocal students from area high schools to be a part of the ensemble.

Selected to the honors choir from EAHS were Nicole Faiola (alto) and Dean McBride (bass). Both Faiola and McBride are return performers at the district level.

“Congratulations to two outstanding choral musicians on a wonderful District 7 Concert,” said Dana Baxter, choral director for EAHS.

This year’s festival was held at Hempfield High School over two days in early February with a culminating concert the evening of the second night. Dr. Mitos Andaya, associate professor of choral music for Temple University, was the guest conductor. The ensemble consisted of nearly 200 singers chosen through auditions from 75 schools from Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Franklin, Perry and York counties.
