The following will be representing West Branch at the PMEA District 4 Band festival at Juniata High School on January 24-26, 2019

Rachel Heitsenrether, Clarinet I

Kelly Fuller, Cornet I

Josh Guerra, Trumpet II

Elizabeth Blake, French Horn I

Juliana Windhorst, Trombone III

Dalton Kristofits, Tuba

The musicians will be staying in Juniata for three days during the festival and will play selected pieces by the guest director. They will be competing for a spot in Region Band via live auditions. Their chair placement will decide whether they make it or not. Only the top few chairs will make it.

Rachel Heitsenrether is a three year district member. In the 16-17 school year, she placed 3rd chair in districts and 9th in regionals. The 17-18 school year she placed 4th in districts and 6th in regions. Rachel plans on doing better this year.

Good luck to all and represent West Branch well!
