What makes St. Mary’s Area High School so cool? Their music program!
St. Mary’s Area High School was nominated by a parent for their cool music department. She says the teachers are extremely dedicated and deserve some recognition for the time and effort they put into the program.
Choral & Marching Band Director Adam Brooks and Theater Arts Director Matt Frank join us today to talk about the arts at St. Mary’s. They are joined by students, Andrea Dollinger and Jamie Whitaker. Andrea is an All-State musician who has played in District, Region, and State Bands, District Jazz, IUP Honors Band, Warren Civic Orchestra, and has been accepted to the Susquehanna Honors Band in February. She also participates in marching band and indoor drumline. Jaime is a senior member of most of the performance ensembles at the high school. She was this past season's marching band drum major and section leader, and has performed in all of the musicals, choirs, and drama performances. She was recently selected to perform with the U.S. Army All-American Marching Band in San Antonio, TX on January 4th.
Andrea treats us to a trombone solo on today’s show!
