Elementary Students Perform in PMEA District 1 Band Festival
Two Keystone Oaks elementary students recently participated in the Pennsylvania Music Education Association’s District 1 Elementary Band Festival at Hampton Middle School. Ben Burke, a 5th grade student at Aiken Elementary School, and Jane Harvey, a 5th grade student at Dormont Elementary School, were among 150 local elementary students chosen to participate in the festival.

Students are given between 7 and 10 pieces of music to learn on their own prior to the festival. The group of 150 students meets the day prior to the concert to rehearse as a group. This year’s live concert was under the direction of Rusty Pontiere, a retired music teacher from Montour School District.

Ben plays the trombone and Jane plays the flute; both students take lessons with KO music teacher Mrs. Kerry Karapandi. Congratulations, Ben and Jane, on your outstanding accomplishment!
