More Musical Hardware for the Redskins

CONGRATULATIONS to Kristen Johnston, Adriana Romano and Emalie Shaffer who represented SHS in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association DISTRICT 8 Band Festival, held this year  in Troy.  During “Day One” of the three day festival, the Redskins auditioned for concert chair positions and the opportunity to continue on in PMEA Festival events.


Our ladies rocked the house!  All three of them chaired well and performed their auditions skillfully enough to earn their way to the REGION IV Band Festival!  That festival will be held at Williamsport High School in February.  The audition results were:

Kristen Johnston made 1st Chair – Horn 1.

Adriana Romano made 5th Chair – Flute 2.

Emalie Shaffer made 2nd Chair – Flute 1.

During the auditions, Emalie also earned the distinction of being the DISTRICT 8 piccolo player!  That display of musical talent allows her to audition for one of only two available piccolo chairs at the ALL-STATE Band to be held in Hershey in March.
