Students HItting Top Notes in Band

Band Director Mr. Todd Mengel recently learned that two band students have achieved impressive status at the PA State level.

Sam Turley, in 11th grade, has the distinct honor of being selected into the Pennsylvania All-State JAZZ BAND.  Sam is a trombone player whose audition qualified him for entry into this ultra-competitive and elite ensemble. The all-state jazz band will rehearse and perform at the PMEA all-state music convention in Pittsburgh later this spring.

Michael Kronengold, a 12th grade band member and composer, has been selected as a prestigious winner in the PMEA Music Composition Contest. Michael submitted an original composition last fall and his composition was chosen as a winner. We await more details on what Michael's selection will mean. 

Congratulations to both of these talented students, to Mr. Mengel for his leadership, and to all of those associated with Owen J. Roberts Band. This is a proud moment for Owen J. Roberts!
