Yvonna Liszewski, a junior at Kennett High School, has qualified for the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association All-State Festival as part of the All-State Concert Band. The band is comprised of approximately 100 of the best musicians from across the Commonwealth.
Yvonna was one of only four flautists who qualified from PMEA Region VI that includes high school musicians from Chester, Bucks, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties.
Always humble, Yvonna said, “The way auditions are handled, it’s really just a snapshot of your playing ability. So, while I might have been better on that particular day, there are so many talented musicians in our region.”
However, Mr. Anton Romano, Kennett High School’s Band Director asserted, “It’s pretty amazing to make it once, and Yvonna has made it two consecutive years. She really is just that good.”
The festival will be held from March 30 to April 2, culminating in a concert at the Hershey Convention Center on the final day.
