KHS Musicians Attend Districts

Four incredibly talented Kennett High School musicians have been selected by audition to various Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District 12 Honor Festivals. District 12 includes Chester and Delaware counties and is undeniably one of the most competitive in the state.

David Lemper (flute) and Kara Murphy (clarinet) will be attending the District Band Festival, February 13 to 15 at Radnor High School for the chance to advance to the Region level. These students are directed at Kennett High School by Anton Romano.

Participating in the District Chorus, held January 16 to 18 at Sun Valley High School, were Ryan Myers (bass) and Catherine Seamon (alto). Katie Soukup is the choral director at Kennett High School. Both Ryan and Catherine advanced to Regions.

Auditions for selection to the PMEA District Festivals were held on November 23 at Bayard Rustin High School in West Chester. Students had to demonstrate excellence in major and chromatic scales, as well as solo performance, or choral selections, in order to earn the right to participate at the District Festivals. At their respective festivals, students re-audition for the opportunity to go on to Region and State levels
