Six EA student-musicians have been selected to perform with the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District 12 band, orchestra, and choir.

"It was a great day for EA’s musicians, as all six students earned seats in these honors ensembles," said Upper School Band Director Ryan Dankanich, Hon.

Ashley Kim ’23 (flute), Hailey Deng ’25 (clarinet), and Theo Engelman ’25 (trumpet), were accepted into the D12 band. Eric Cui ’23 (violin), Michelle Jiang ’24 (violin), and Ashley were accepted into the D12 orchestra.

The PMEA auditions were held in November.
