First Ever Upper School Student Selected for PMEA State Orchestra

After performing in the PMEA (Pennsylvania Music Educators Association) District 11 orchestra in January and auditioning with a competitive group of talented musicians, Shipley violinist Saakshi ’19 was selected to participate in the PMEA State Orchestra Festival.

Saakshi is the first Shipley student to be selected for the state orchestra. The festival and rehearsals with conductor Stephen L. Gage of Youngstown State University will be held in Erie, PA from April 19 – 22. A public concert is scheduled for April 22 at 4:00 p.m. at the Warner Theatre in Erie.
