PAHS Band News for the Week of 11/27/16


I hope that everyone had a restful and relaxing Thanksgiving break – I know I did!   The next four weeks (you know, until our next break…) are going to go by very quickly.  A lot of preparation for our next concert in February will be done in the month of December.  Many of you are also going to be starting with some of our smaller ensembles (jazz band, indoor!)….so there’s lots of things to keep you all busy.


Arnie says “Good Jawb”!

Congratulations to Matt Tweedie, Sarah Coffman, and Sean Malloy: All three were selected for the 2017 PMEA District 12 Band!  In addition, Matt & Sarah were also selected for the District 12 Orchestra.
