Elementary Students Chosen for String Festival

Six Fox Chapel Area School District elementary school students were recently selected to perform at the first-ever Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) District One Elementary String Festival. The participating Fox Chapel Area students were Hartwood Elementary School fifth graders Ada Chu, Peter Manelis, and Gloria Wen, and O’Hara Elementary fifth graders Lincoln Baldwin, Rachel Milcheck, and Ranny Weng.

The festival included more than 100 of the best elementary string players from Allegheny, Fayette, Greene, Washington, and Westmoreland counties. The students practiced together, participated in master classes, and performed a concert March 10, 2017, at Quaker Valley Middle School.
