Junior Selected for PMEA Region I Band Festival

Congratulations to HHS junior Corey Beck for being selected to represent Highlands at the upcoming PMEA (PA Music Educators Association) Region I Band Festival this spring. Both Corey and sophomore Larkin Richards represented Highlands at the District I East Band Festival hosted at Laurel Highlands High School on Feb. 11.

While at Districts, Corey auditioned for placement within the Percussion Section and earned the Principal (First) Chair in his section.  This position earned him the ability to advance to Regionals.  PMEA Region I is comprised of schools from Allegheny, Westmoreland, Fayette, Greene, Washington, Butler, Beaver, Lawrence and Mercer counties.  

At Regionals, Corey will again audition for placement and potentially earn the opportunity to perform in one of two PMEA All-State Honors Ensembles later this school year.  Congratulations and Good Luck, Corey!
